I've been using this as a way to help home schooling history for our grandchildren come alive. They write letters, then seal them the way it was done long ago. This does exactly what it is supposed to do - securely seal on paper, and then crack when the seal is broken. The deep red has an elegant, vintage look.
I have been looking for the perfect sealing wax for my wife's projects for years. She was so happy with this when she got it! I looks right, it feels right, it works perfectly. We have tried numerous places and types of wax to no avail. Finally! Thank you so much.
Excellent traditional wax seal. It gives a letter that timeless quality and elegant look that will cause the recipient of your letter or document to preserve it for generations.
