What is Microcrystalline Wax ?
Microcrystalline wax, also know as microwax, is a hard, sticky wax with a high oil content. Combine microwax with candle wax to make your own sculpting wax for bronze casting.
Microwax is much stickier and more flexible than paraffin wax. The melting point is 70 – 80C.
How to Use Microcrystalline Wax
Add microwax to paraffin wax for sculpting and hand moulding purposes. Make a 1 : 1 blend for best results. Add ball clay or gum rosin to change the consistency if you are using this blend for sculpting.
