Atelier Gargoyle Flexible Sealing Wax - Olive Green (1-Stick)
This olive green Atelier Gargoyle flexible sealing wax does not crack or chip when dry
or when going through USPS. Great for mailing! Made in the USA.
Each stick of Atelier Gargoyle Flexible Sealing Wax weighs approx 5/8 oz or 18 grams, and is a tad short of 6 inches long. Each stick will make about 20-40 seal impressions, depending on the size of the seal and the level of experience of the person making the seal impressions.
Atelier Gargoyle Flexible Sealing Wax is composed of natural resins, beeswax, synthetic resins, pigments for color and essential oils for scent. The synthetic resins give the wax toughness, tenacity, flexibility and survivability.
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”.
