|Modeling Wax I
1/2 pound 129/139 paraffin wax
1 pound beeswax
Modeling Wax II
2 pounds beeswax
3 ounces petroleum jelly (you can make this without mineral oil for an "un"petroleum jelly that is all natural)
Modeling Wax III
1 pound beeswax
1 pound micro crystalline wax (M-205 from "Barker Enterprises")
I've got beeswax from candles. Anyone know what is in the modeling beeswax to make it softer than plain beeswax? Anyone know how I can make my own version of the Stockmar product?
I've never actually touched modeling beeswax, so don't even know what I'm emmulating, so any thoughts would help!
I don't think there is anything in the Stockmar modeling beezwax. I've bought it before, and used it, although I'm not 100% on that. I can say that I don't think that it would be so popular in Waldorf schools if it were made with parafin, petrolum jelly, or any other type of wax.....they are pretty big on purity!!
Anyway, I do know for sure that the Stockmar type of modeling beezwax isn't melted to be used. Part of the draw to children, is the fact that it magically softens with the warmth of your hands. It feels really neat once it gets soft and pliable (sp?), and is very relaxing and enjoyable to work with (not to mention it can be used to make amazing things!!)
