Step 3: Casting the Wax
Once your bags are dissolved, it is almost time to pour the wax into molds. You may have some small clumps of plastic at this point, and there are a few different ways to remove them. The first option is to use a kitchen strainer to filter out the clumps as your pour the liquid goo into your molds. This works very well, but I have yet to be able to re-use the kitchen strainer afterwards. The second (and less effective) is to turn off your fryer and let the clumps float to the top. The top of the liquid will start to solidify and make it easier to skim off the clumps with a spoon. Either way, wear leather gloves!
If you chose option #2, turn your fryer back on and make sure your wax is liquid before pouring. When pouring into molds, pour slowly but be committed as you do not want wax to drip down the side of your fryer. Once poured, cover the molds with a towel so that they cool slowly. The slower they cool, the more likely that air bubbles will escape before getting stuck in the wax.
