Make Your Own Beeswax Wrap Wax Pot Instructions:
Buy a pot of wax mix here...
1) Wash and dry fabric. Cut fabric into desired shapes and sizes.
3) Remove lid & label, & place pot in a saucepan. Add water to saucepan until the water comes up 3cm from top of jar.
4) Turn stovetop to medium-high heat, and allow wax mix to melt. Preheat oven to 150° C.
5) Cover large cookie sheet with a sheet of silicon baking paper larger than your biggest piece of fabric.
6) Spread a fabric piece (or pieces, depending on size) flat on baking paper. Brush mixture lightly onto fabric. It might solidify, which is fine, as you'll be able to redistribute later. It’s easy to oversaturate, so remember that it’s easier to add more than take the excess away. Put cookie sheet in oven for 2 minutes, or until fabric looks wet.
7) Remove from oven and look for any dry spots. Brush mixture over these uncovered areas, applying more coating as needed. If you notice unevenness after adding more, you can place it back in the oven for a few minutes to smooth.
8) Place the next wrap(s) you are going to make on top of the finished fabric to soak up any excess coating mixture. Work quickly, as you don’t want the wax to begin to solidify.
9) Once you’ve pressed any excess onto the new cloth, peel apart and hang your completed wrap(s) to dry. Drying only takes a few minutes.
