"Bloom" on beeswax
« on: September 11, 2011, 08:43:52 am »
I have a couple nativity scenes in beeswax. They have a wax bloom on them.

Anything you can use, spray, tricks, that can make them look new again.

I understand this is a natural process of the wax.

The finer details of the figurines are hard to hand polish. So I am hoping for some easier way to getting the bloom off. Even if it means rubbing them with some type spray or anti-bloom product.

Thank you.

BB seems like I have seen a spray like your talking about in one of the beekeeping catalogs.  I want to say it was either Better Bee or Mann Lake.  Could be wrong though as the wife has been looking at candle making stuff and you know how crap starts to run together.  Check them out and if they don't have it just pm me and I'll get all my books out and see if I can't run across it again.  If not may have to put her to work finding it cause I'm pretty sure we looked at a product in an aerosol can for wax bloom.
Take me to the land of milk and honey!!!
