Wax is a very accessible material. It's soft, inexpensive, and has a low melting point. In the Wax Challenge, share any and all wax projects, tips, and tricks. From lost wax casting and handmade candles, to leg waxing and making beeswax, all projects that incorporate or are inspired by wax are eligible.
We could wax poetic all day about this wonderful substance, but we'd rather see you get creative with it. The winner of this challenge will take home a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note and an Instructables prize pack (which includes a highly desirable Instructables T-shirt).
