So I didn’t like my first beeswax wraps. They didn’t hold their shape, and weren’t flexible enough.
So I decided to try again. The result was pretty good, although slightly discolored.
For my wax products, I keep a variety of crock pots for various things, i.e. pure wax, lip balm, and this mixture. I pick them up at thrift stores.
The instructions say a double broiler, but I find this to be easier.
I took my calicos and cut squares with pinking shears. They weren’t exact, but I was trying a new recipe, so I was okay with close.
I put all of the ingredients in the crock pot and lined a cookie sheet with tinfoil. Next time I might use parchment paper. I preheated the oven to 300.
I brushed on the wax mixture, pretty liberally. Then popped it into the oven for three minutes. After three minutes, I flipped it for another three minutes. Then I let it cool. Then I folded them.
The fabric was a little discolored-not sure how much is dark wax, and how much is cheap fabric. I might try with better calico.
But, in all, I was pleased with the result. I made two sets of five. Not quite selling quality, but I think the next ones might be good enough. Now I just need to get the fabric.
