A note from the founders, Linnea and Ward:

We started experimenting with making our own sealing wax in the early 1990s. We’ve tested it on our personal correspondence since then, and we started selling it to the public in 2003. We make the wax sticks ourselves in our atelier. We mix small batches and pour the wax into special molds from which individual sticks are removed and trimmed. Our wax comes in a rainbow of colors, and is sized for convenience of use.

We consulted with noted herbalist Jeanne Rose to find the right essential oils to scent our wax; which include cassia, nutmeg, clove bud, litsea cubeba, lavender, vetiver, and pine. Our wax sticks bear a calligraphic rendering (done by Ward) of our business name (Atelier Gargoyle), along with the medieval alchemical symbols for “wax” and “spirit or essence”.

Atelier Gargoyle Flexible Sealing Wax - Gold (1-Stick) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Atelier Gargoyle - Yes! I absolutely love this sealing wax! This time around, I ordered Copper, Gold, Silver, and Espresso. The quality of the wax is superb. The metallics are very nice and rich, and the "plain" colors are anything but. The "raw" stick may look a little flat if you're buying for first time, but just melt that first seal and you'll see the true beauty come out. The sticks are large and give a lot of seals for the buck. It is very economical to use, the cost is really not pricey at all. Plus, it holds up really well in the mails. The scents of the wax are truly wonderful. Earthy and warm. When I opened the package, I was greeted with intoxicating earth tones, and it felt like I could instantly be transported into either Christmas Eve, or a Midsummer's night. The scents are luscious without being perfume-ish or overpowering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Rich Gold Seals I've been using J. Herbin sealing wax and I had to try Atelier Gargoyle wax too. I don't have any of Herbin's gold wax, but the images of this gold wax looked great, I had to try it. These sticks are quite a bit longer than the J. Herbin sticks, about the same width and a little thinner. I would like to know the weight comparison between J. Herbin and these wax sticks because I think AG sticks are less expensive per ounce. In use they perform just about identically to the J. Herbin wax. I can't compare with J. Herbin gold wax, have not bought that color. But this gold wax is just beautiful. When the AG wax dries, the edges that are not pressed by the seal have more gloss than the J. Herbin wax. I love the aroma of this wax. All in all a great sealing wax, no problem using at all since I follow the technique Brian shows us in his helpful video. Atelier Gargoyle offers a very wide range of colors, I am so glad to see Goulet Pens carrying these. I will order more of these sealing waxes, the silver wax will be in my next Goulet order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells like cloves! It took a little practice. I tried it with three different butane lighters and managed to render all three useless for a time. They could not keep up with the number of seals I was doing on our huge batch of Christmas cards. I was forced to use a candle to melt the wax, but once I perfected the method it was actually easier than using a lighter. If you take your time and keep the wax moving a little above the flame it works great. I especially take my time warming up the wax for the first seal. As long as you keep your wax out of the flame it will not look sooty. I also used an ice pack to keep the seal cool, but after a while you may get water drops forming on the seal and they will distort your seal if you don't wipe them off. This gold color is so pretty! I even played around with mixing it with the red and green sticks And had fabulous results. Mixing worked best with the lighter. I would melt a couple drops of gold on the page then add my red or green on top. When the sticks got too short I melted the ends and stuck them together, that also created a fun mixed look. I love the scents. It smelled wonderful while making the seals and the scent sticks around after it hardens. Red smells like cinnamon, green like pine, gold like cloves, and turquoise might also be pine. So much fun! Highly recommended!
