Add personality to letters, wedding invitations, and gifts with these sealing waxes from Seattle-based Global Solutions. You’ll get six wick wax sticks, each measuring 4 inches long. Before you make an impression, trim the wick so it’s flush with your wax. Then, using a lighter, soften the wax for about 10 seconds. Gently push the wick onto the paper so a small amount of wax falls onto the wick, and relight the wax. Drip 10 to 15 drops into a pool, push the lit end of the wax stick directly into the pool, and swirl it around in a circle. Push your stamp into the wax and wait 5 seconds. Then, gently rock the stamp out of the wax to leave a clean impression. For a more dramatic result, tap the stamp lightly on a pigment ink pad before pressing it into the wax.
Note: This drop is for a 6-pack of wick wax sticks. At checkout, you can mix and match from 24 different colors.
Global Solutions founder Cathy Simon started out working with high-end paper. While at a trade show, she saw a selection of wax seals, and knew immediately she wanted to learn the process herself. Inspired by the long history of wax seals, which can be traced back to the world’s first civilizations, she spent the next 8 years perfecting her formula. Today, Global Solutions sells decorative seals in a variety of sizes, along with wick-wax, paper goods, vintage watch parts, and more.
