    Default Packing waxes

    Hello,
    I'm sending off my very first wax to be cast (ulp) along with something to have a mould made so I can modify waxes to then be cast.
    Any top tips for packing? It's a simple shape (I'm trying not to run before I can crawl).
    Thanks

    Put the wax in a small zip seal bag first so you don't get fluff all over it. Then cotton wool around it, then put in a small card or plastic box about credit card size is ideal.

    Sorry to ask, but why do you have to be so careful with packing wax to be cast... or is this a silly question?

    If for example you have small claws for example they can be very brittle and fall off the way the post man chucks stuff about
