After starting with the Ironing Method, we introduced the Dipping Method to our workshops.
For those participants who would like a refresher, here are the instructions.
You will need an electric fry pan, crock pot, double boiler or a plain-old-pot-on-your-stove.
And, your usual wax wrap ingredients: beeswax, powdered pine resin, and coconut oil.
1- Melt together: 50g of beeswax + 1 tablespoon coconut oil + 1 tablespoon powdered pine resin. Stir thoroughly.
2- Dip fabric into mixture until well soaked.
3- Use tongs to pick up 2 corners of the fabric, and lift up out of the pot.
4- Air dry by waving it back and forth.
Once the bottom of your fabric is no longer dripping liquid wax, pop it down onto your table to finish drying … and your wax wrap is done!
