Today I am working on beeswax molds. Beeswax has a variety of uses, but for quilters the main two are in batiking fabrics and in preventing thread from knotting up when hand sewing. Just run the bar of wax along your thread and voila - no more tangles.These are the hexagonal molds I am using - 1 oz. and 1.5 oz. Hubby supplied me with that big hunk of beeswax you see on the right.
