06 - Glass wax cube

Glass wax cube
Always use a specialist melting pot.

Glass wax melts at a higher temperature than most waxes, but has the advantage of remaining clear, this providing opportunity for effects similar to that of glass itself, but with a greater workability in the liquid state.

It’s clarity offers possibilities for embedding objects, similar to resin see object number 25 … but with the advantage of speed, economy and without the need for specialist fume and dust extraction.
