Step One: Set up a clean, heatproof workspace that is away from any flammable items as you will be using a tea light candle.
Step Two: Light your tea light candle and place the Wax Melt Burner over the top
Step Three: Add 3 wax beads to your melting spoon and rest on your Wax Melt Burner
Step Four: Wait for the Wax Beads to melt to the consistency of thick honey
Step Five: Pour the wax onto the surface your working on – either an Envelope, Card, Makers Mat etc. You want to pour to the size of a 10c piece. Aim to pour in a perfect circle.
Step Six: Press your Wax Seal Stamp down in the centre of the wax you have just poured. Use a bit of pressure to make a clearer impression
Step Seven: Wait for the wax to cool and gently take off your Wax Seal Stamp!
If you’re adding Dried Petals or Foil Leaf, add them in using Fine Point Tweezers once you have poured your wax. Work quickly to avoid the wax cooling down which will impact the shape of your wax seal!
