This traditional Sealing Wax is still produced in the same methods and molds of yesteryear and was originally used to seal legal papers and documents by governments and banks. Made in the Original formula, this wax is still hand made by a Scottish sealing wax factory in the same tradition since 1752.

Each stick of wickless wax is 8" long and 3/8" thick, and can be used either by hand melting over a flame to produce individual impressions or by breaking up into pieces and melting down (hence, no wicks!).

This wax has a low melting point of approximately 200 to 230 degrees Fahrenheit. It is then easily dripped onto your envelope or paper with the use of a spoon.

This wax is ideal for use in all projects where you still want the look and appearance of REAL sealing wax.

Each stick makes approximately 20 average size impressions per stick.

Using a spoon, carefully pour your melted wax into a small pool on your desired paper or surface, firmly press your stamp into the melted wax. Hold for a few moments until the wax cools and sets and then release your stamp.
We like to rest our stamps on a wet paper towel and briefly blot dry before stamping, as we find it cools the stamp and makes a clearer impression.

Using Seals and Wax to seal letters and/or magical papers dates back to practically the beginning of the written word. In Ancient times, it was the only way to properly seal magical scrolls, letters, documents and papers. Use these seals on your magical works, pacts and prayers. Send a letter to a friend instead of an email and get back to the days of old.

These will be shipped inside a sturdy cardboard tube, as they are extremely fragile and breakable. If you are ordering multiple items, your shipping costs may come down a couple of ounces, once the final package is ready to ship. Due to the length though, for example, if you order this and a bottle of oil, it may not, due to the difference in sizes. Shipping items that are very lightweight but need sturdy packaging are always a challenge.
Always remember my policy that if your shipping charges have an overage of $1 or more, it will be refunded to you.

Hint: Calculate how many sticks you need by dividing the number of desired wax seal impressions by 20 (18 to be on the conservative side or if you want to make larger impressions) and you will get the number of sticks needed to complete your project. For high volume use of this style sealing wax, we recommend a melting pot and a spoon, sold separately or you can use an old heavy saucepan for this purpose. This wax melts at approximately 200-230 degrees Fahrenheit, so it is recommended to be melted at low temperatures only.
