- 5 – pieces of fabric (round and square)
- 2 – Formulated Beeswax Pucks (contains: beeswax, pine resin, organic jojoba oil)
- 1 – small paint brush
- 1 – popsicle stick for stirring
- Place formulated beeswax puck in a double boiler or glass measuring cup and set in a sauce pan. I have also used a very well cleaned tin can so as not to ruin a pot or glass measuring cup.
- Add water to the saucepan until the mixture inside the double boiler/measuring cup or tin is below the waterline. Turn burner to medium-high heat.
- Preheat oven to 300°F.
- Allow puck to melt which will take approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
- Cover large cookie sheet with a sheet of parchment paper larger than your biggest piece of fabric.
- Spread fabric pieces flat on parchment paper.
- Brush mixture lightly onto fabric. It may solidify, which is fine, as you will be able to redistribute later. It’s each to over saturate, so remember it is easier to add more than take the excess away.
- Put cookie sheet in oven for 2 minutes, or until fabric looks wet. Don’t walk away from your project.
- Remove from oven and look for any dry spots. Brush mixture over these uncovered areas, applying more coating as needed. If you notice unevenness after adding more, you can place it back in the oven for a few minutes to smooth. Work quickly as you don’t wan the wax to begin to solidify.
- Once you have pressed any excess onto a new cloth, peel apart and hang your completed wraps to dry. Drying only takes a few minutes.
- Repeat steps with additional pieces of fabric until you are out of coating mixture.
