This is super cool and I will have to try it. <br>On a slightly separate note can you tell me what bag you used for the base because I really like it but my Google-fu seems to be insufficient to source it.
I had actually never been able to locate any more bags like mine online, but thanks to a commenter on PetaPixel.com for finding them on eBay! Here's a link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/110809939905
I had no idea on how to do this. Nice overview! <br> <br>I also wanted to reinforce using a double boiler to melt wax. Melting it over direct heat (not using a double boiler) is very dangerous!
