They can turn ordinary papers into something special, and can be different colors, patterns, and even incorporate feathers, leaves and other natural objects. After all it’s made to press down soft, melted wax, so it doesn’t need to be resistant to scratches and damage from other, harder objects. After many mixes and messes, trying everything from colored beeswax candles, cheese wax, and paraffin wax, I remembered trying to clean up the large round balls of melted glue stick that dripped on Mr. Handy’s grandmothers craft table. Safety notice: sealing wax melts easily in a fairy low temperature, so even if a drop accidentally falls on a bare skin it has a temperature similar to ordinary candle or paraffin wax. Either candle wax or paraffin wax don’t mix with sealing wax easily, so it would be clearly visible in the wax seal as a pollution. Otherwise a black soot from the flame will mix with the melting wax and pollute the pure colour of the wax on your seal with black trails.

8. Ignite the gas lighter and carefully put the lower end of the sealing wax stick into the flame. Although sealing wax melts in a quite low temperature, it heats up somewhat slowly, so you need a source of constant, stable flame to heat it up enough for melting to occur. 11. Once you’ve got enough of melted wax in a place you want your wax seal to apply to, quickly put the flame out and put the sealing wax stick aside. For those of you who are sending your hand-stamped wax seals through the mail, this is usually quite a safe option because your wax seal will be able to bond tightly with your paper when stamped. While all air compressors need lubrication to function, in some, parts are coated with special chemicals designed to reduce friction. Is there not something special about receiving and writing a proper letter? Unfortunately, there is no way of purifying the seal when it happens.

The darker the sealing wax the more resistant for pollution it is (in a way you wouldn’t notice the black marks and trails in darker wax that much). We wouldn’t like to destroy that beautiful tablecloth of yours, now would we? Now let’s discuss each item a bit. So my sincere advice to you is to wipe a matrix with a bit of cooking oil first, it will prevent your stamp from plugging and give the nice polish to the wax seal placed on paper. 15. Now when you finally lifted your wax seal stamp a wax seal should remain on your letter. In this tutorial I will be using a Game of Thrones Hand of the King wax seal kit, but the same rules will apply to any wax seal you will have access to. That’s it. I hope you’ve enjoyed this guide on using a wax seal and found informations helpful.

I like to keep the jar either sitting in the gently simmering pot of water, or remove the jar from the pot with oven mitts and set on the electric candle burner to keep the wax from hardening while using. For my DIY Wax Seal Stamp solution, I dug around in my vintage button jar until I found a couple of buttons with suitable designs. Sealing wax is designed to set quickly so the design for the seal is actually visible. You can use a generic wax seal stamp (like Hand of the King kit mentioned earlier), old letter wax seal create one by yourself or pay a craftsman to engrave customised stamp with your own design. Most of customised stamps have a diameter between 30 and 35 millimetres and the Game of Thrones wax seal stamp I’ll use has a diameter of 24 millimetres which is golden mean. Too heavy stamps (e.g. some antique ones with lead filling) will squeeze the wax out and the layer remained below the matrix will be too thin to form a distinctive mark. No wooden or made of polymer clay stamps will be durable enough to serve you for a long time. One stick weighting 100 grams will be sufficient enough to make few dozens of medium (diameter of 25-30 millimetres) wax seals.
