When I was in my early 20's, almost 50 years ago!, I had an assortment of wax seals and wax bars that I loved to use. Over the years they've become lost but I've thought about them off and on. I was so excited when my favorite stamp company, Altenew, started to offer these products. It takes just a little practice to figure out how much wax to melt and the wax seal is easy to use for an excellent impression. The handle is very easy to use and is comfortable to hold. I remember the old wax seals were brittle, but this wax dries with some flexibility so you don't have to worry about it breaking off in the mail or on a scrapbook page. What a terrific addition to an increasingly diverse line of products!
