Things you'll need:
• A brass spoon
• Sealing wax beads
• A candle - We recommend a soy wax candle to ensure you have a soot-less flame.
• Your wax stamp
• Items you wish to seal
Light your candle, add some wax beads to your spoon and hold your spoon over the flame to melt the wax. Use different colours of beads to create a marble effect. You can use the end of a match stick to stir the wax to quicken the melting process.
Tip: Don't hold your spoon too close to the flame as the bottom of the spoon will go black and might alter the colour of your wax!
Once the wax has melted, pour directly onto the item you wish to seal.
Tip: Don't heat your sealing wax too much. If the wax starts to bubble then allow it to cool a little before pouring. Wax that is too hot can cause bubbles along the edge of the seal, as well as a flat edge. Ideally, you're looking for a consistency that looks almost sticky rather than runny.
Using your wax stamp, make your impression on the pool of molten wax leaving it to rest in the wax for a couple of seconds before removal. Don't forget to make sure your stamp is the right way up!
Remove your stamp from the wax and your seal is complete!
