Whether you are working with Glue-Gun Sealing Wax or Sealing Wax Beads, we wanted to put together our step by step instructions for how to create that perfect impression.

To get started, simply scroll down until you find your style of sealing wax, then follow the steps below!

Number of Wax Seals Per Glue Gun Wax Stick (based on size of seal):

  • ¾” round: 10-12 seals
  • 1” round: 7-10 seals
  • 1.25” round: 5-7 seals
  • 1.5” round: 3-5 seals
  • 1.75" round: 2-3 seals
  • 2” round: 1-2 seals 

The Materials

When it comes to making the perfect wax seal - the tools you are using to make them are key!

Here's what you'll need:

  • One Wax Seal Stamp (or several if you are working with multiple designs)
  • Glue Gun Sealing Wax Sticks
  • Sealing Wax Gun (or low-temp glue gun)
  • Ice (or an ice pack)

Once you have all of your materials ready, it's time to dive in!

Step 3. Wipe the die with your hand or a microfiber cloth, then press your wax seal into the wax. Let the wax cool for a short time (10-15 seconds), then gently peel the wax seal away.

Quick Tip: Is your Wax Seal sticking to the wax? Try cooling your seal on ice again! A sticky seal means your brass die is too warm!
