Yes i heard about the alka selzer.
Up date on Waxing your cotton forms
I have diped them 1 , 2,3 &4 times in the wax to coat
they all work well but on the thicker wax when i was trimming my holes with a straw
th straw dug into the wax too so when i removed the clay from the hole , bits of wax came out with it, which got in my scrap clay. it didnt make any difference to the bead though.
I will just coat cotton ball forms 2 times in the future , unless my form has a dimple i want to fill , ill go thicker with the wax.
I also was able to patch a dent in one of my cotton forms with the wax.
I scraped some hot wax off my stir stick and patched the dent , cooled, and then dipped my whole form in the wax to coat.
I also coated all the forms i had while i had the wax out and melted so they are ready to go when i need them
I used Gulf Parafin canning was.
