Beeswax


This is the end result of one of my projects this weekend. Some time ago I had bought some chunks of beeswax with the idea that I could melt it and make it into small cakes that I could use for my hand sewing and that E and A could use for waxing bow strings. Well I never got around to doing it until now. After getting some advice on the Etsy forums I broke the beeswax into smaller chunks, melted it in a quart jar in a pot of boiling water and poured it into a silicon mini muffin tin to make the cakes. It was a bit messy but worked out well. I ended up with a couple dozen little cakes of beeswax which is probably going to be enough to last me for the rest of my life with plenty to spare.
