Beginner's Guide to Wax Seals: How To Use A Wax Seal Stamp
You will need:
wax sticks (without wick, suitable for use in a wax gun)
an envelope (or paper if you wish to practice)
First, plug in your wax gun and wait for it to heat up. Place the wax stick inside the gun and use another, if needed, to help advance the first.
While you're waiting for the wax gun to warm up, take a pencil and draw around the base of your wax stamp so that you have a guide when it comes to melting your wax.
Next, pull the trigger of the wax gun to release the wax on the paper, following the outline of the pencil mark, and eventually filling in the circle.
Then, firmly press your wax stamp into the melted wax and wait a few seconds for the wax to harden before carefully lifting it off the page.
