Clear, medium density gel wax. Best known for being completely clear, used for all sorts of candles - under-water aquarium scenes, beers, cocktails etc. With just a little bit of colour added, these candles remain transparent and take on the nature of the glass and embeds you choose.
Completely clear, melt to 1400C - gel wax cannot be melted over water. Double saucepan set-up does not product enough heat, so great care must be taken when melting directly on the heat. Use as low a heat as possible stirring constantly and DO NOT leave unattended. Turn it off if you leave the area.
1 Kg of Gel wax will melt down to make approximately 1.25 Litres of liquid.
