I am very pleased that my wax arrived today, so I have spent the whole afternoon melting wax and grinding damar crystals. I started off trying to grate the wax block, but found it too painful so now i have the block slowly melting in a slow cooker. I just hope it melts before bed time or next time I will be starting all over again. I am thinking an electric frying pan will probably work better, but I will see. I have made 2 muffin sized blocks and will make coloured blocks as I need them. I have four more one kilo blocks which should keep me going a while and am also waiting to hear from a local supplier.
