Wax Sealed Valentines DIY
Recipe type: Home Crafts
  • 1 oz. Candelilla Wax
  • .5 oz. Cera Bellina Wax
  • Red Wax Dye Block
  • Heavy Metal Gold Mica
  • Heart Stamp
  1. Place the cera bellina wax and candelilla wax into a heat safe container, and melt in the microwave using 45 second bursts. Once fully melted, be careful hen removing from the microwave, as the container will be very hot.
  2. Shave off ½ tsp. of Red Wax Dye Block, and add to the melted wax. Use a spoon to thoroughly incorporate the color.
  3. Place a small amount of Heavy Metal Gold Mica into a small dish. Spray the stamp with isopropyl alcohol, and dip the stamp into the mica. Blow off any excess mica from the stamp. In addition to giving the wax shimmer, the mica also helps the stamp release from the hot wax easily. NOTE: The Heart Stamp has been discontinued.
  4. Using a spoon, pour a small amount of the wax into the center of the envelope. This step is easier when the wax has cooled slightly; if the wax is extremely hot, it may run off the envelope instead of pooling in the center.
  5. Place the stamp into the hot wax, and allow the wax to cool around the stamp. Gently pull the stamp up and out of the wax.
