How to seal your wax seals QUICKLY

So you have a big job ahead of you and need to seal a million fresh wax seals (ok maybe I’m exaggerating a little here), but have you noticed that your wax stamper gets really hot after stamping a couple of seals?

The worst thing about sealing wax is the waiting time for the wax to harden. It takes a really long time if your stamper is hot.

This little tip helps speed up your wax sealing time!

You will need the following:

  1. Some paper towels or absorbent napkins
  2. A little bowl of ice cubes (make sure you have extra ice cubes in the freezer to replace these when they melt)

How to do it:

  1. Melt your wax onto the surface you’re going to stamp on
  2. Stamp the wax seal
  3. After you remove the stamper from your wax seal, take the stamper and dip it into the bowl of ice, touching the ice cubes.
  4. Dry the stamper by patting it on the napkins or paper towels.
  5. Repeat.
  6. Every 15-20 mins you will need to refill the bowl with fresh ice cubes because they will melt.

Making your stamper ice cold, will dry the wax in record time!

Here’s a little video that shows you how I do it.

I hope this helps! If you have any questions, just let me know :)
