A wax seal stamp is an excellent method to add a distinctive and exquisite touch to your correspondence. However, if you are a novice to wax sealing, it might be difficult to get started. This article will teach you how and when to use your wax seal stamp, as well as some insider hints!
Consider receiving a personal letter that has been sealed with a lovely custom wax seal stamp. You gently open the letter, hoping to preserve the stamp image; inside is a letter from your lover. Wax seals are lovely and offer a personalized feel to your correspondence.
Standard wax and pliable wax are the two major types of beeswax used for wax seals. Classical wax is the same sort of sealing wax that was once used by Monarchs. The primary disadvantage of this sort of wax is that it is fragile and hence unsuitable for mailing.
Pliable wax is more malleable and can endure the rigors of the postal system. It is available in several forms, including wax sticks even without wicks, wax sticks for glue guns, and wax seal pearls.
Pour your beeswax onto a piece of foil paper, a stone cushion, or another heatproof frictionless object if you wish to reuse the wax seal later. Once it has hardened, you can quickly remove it and store it for future use.
Cool the wax stamp before using it to create a speedier wax seal. A cold wax stamping will aid the wax cool quicker and keep it from adhering to the stamp.
Wick Sealing Wax sticks
This is the most straightforward paraffin to apply, but it is more difficult to regulate. One cannot predict where the wax may drop, resulting in a dirtier but more conventional wax seal.
Wick wax sticks are available in a multitude of colors. It is the most basic way; all you’ll need is a flame or candles.
Ignite the beeswax stick and allow the wax to flow into a pool around the size of your wax print.
Tightly apply your sealing stamp into the wax for a few seconds, then let it aside to cure for approximately a minute. Peel the sealing stamp with care. Set aside to cool if you encounter any friction.
Beads of Wax for Sealing
This sort of wax is available in a wide range of forms, sizes, and colors. These are the favorites right now. They allow you to create marble and multicolored wax seals! You may be creative with different colored waxes and wax kinds, such as semi-transparent parchment or clear amber wax.
You will require:
- A lit candle
- A sealing spoon made of wax. A teaspoon may also suffice.
- A clip or martini stick can be used to stir the beeswax.
- Boiling wax oven (optional)
- Put a few wax pearls on your teaspoon, determined by the size of your sealing stamp head.
- Place the spoon near a fire.
- When using a burner, ignite a tealight flame and place it over the stove.
- Put the spatula on top of the burner to melt the wax.
- The wax should be stirred. If the wax begins to boil, you have overheated it; remove it from the flame and allow it to cool until the bubbles disappear.
- Repeat the same steps as the wick sticks.
