So easy to make!
I experimented with using soy wax. I wasn’t pleased with the outcome. It didn’t stick to my bowl and felt greasy rather than sticky.
If you want to give it a try, here is what worked for me:
Set your oven to 200F. Cover a baking sheet with foil and parchment paper or just parchment. Cut your desired shape/size fabric with pinking shears. Place your fabric on the lined baking sheet. I used 1/8 tsp coconut oil (keeps the fabric malleable after it dries) to 1 1/2 cup beeswax pellets* (I buy mine from Soapers Choice) melted together and stirred well to combine. Brush the melted wax/oil mixture on with a brush you don’t intend to use for anything else! If the beeswax begins to harden on your fabric before you are finished, pop the baking sheet/fabric in the oven for a minute or two and finish brushing until your fabric is completely coated with a thin coat of the beeswax/oil mixture. Remove the beeswax wrap from the parchment and place it on a clean sheet of parchment to cool and dry. VOILA!
I am thinking if I ever open my etsy shoppe again, I might add these.
*a few websites suggested using pine resin to keep the wraps sticky, but honestly, I didn’t want any scent but beeswax and I wasn’t sure the pine resin would be odorless.
Until next time, I am…
