How To: Double Layered Wax Sealing Techniques
DOUBLE LAYERED WAX SEALS
Making double-layered wax seals is like putting a photo in a photo frame. It draws attention to the wax seal's design and adds a finishing touch, plus a secondary pop of colour.
The amount of wax that I find works best is 3 wax granules for the first wax seal (using 25mm stamp) so there’s not too much overhanging edge, and then 5 wax granules for the second.
TWO-TONED embedded Wax SEALS
This two toned wax seal comes with an air of mystique because people will wonder how you made it!
Top tips for making two-toned wax seals:
1. Pick a design where the edge is defined enough so that you can cut closely around it
2. Heat your stamp until your wax cut-out sticks to it without falling out when it’s facing down. Be careful not to burn yourself on the stamp and it doesn’t need to be too hot for the wax to stick
3. Don’t attempt to lift off your wax stamp too quickly after you’ve pressed it into the second colour. I know it’s exciting but the heated stamp needs a little more time to cool than usual.
Here is another version featuring our 3D love heart wax stamp. The technique is still the same, but the 3D effect is more obvious from the contrasting wax colour.
