Welcome to dickblick
A simple way to melt wax for batik, crayon painting, candle decorating, ceramic resist, jewelry, sculpture, and lapidary work. The kit includes a palette, removable cups, and a squeeze pen, all aluminum. The squeeze pen is useful for controlled thin to thick lines. Instructions are included.
The Wax Melter operates on household current, and draws roughly the same amount of power as a small soldering iron.
These pens are like aluminum medicine droppers, and are intended for working with melted wax. Package of 10.

challenging to use
I found the containers rather small for use with jaunting tool. I found that larger containers helped more with process of melting wax.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not for Batik
from Annapolis Royal Nova Scotia Canada
I got this specifically for a batik class. It melted to wax ok but the temperature was too low to use. This product is not suited for batik.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that this wax melter isn't working out for you. This tool, once it's been allowed to warm up completely (about 20 minutes), heats to a consistent 140⁰F, which about the melting temperature of common batik wax formulations. We apologize if this is not what you expected, and one of our Customer Care Agents will be following up via email to see how we can help.
Tried this out yesterday, worked as advertised. The dropper really makes filling the cantor with wax easy. Also love that I can just leave the hardened wax in the containers and reheat - no wastage of wax
I would buy this product again...

We use this product in the classroom to melt old pieces of crayons. Then we create encaustic paintings with the palettes we create with the crayons.

Great for crafts!

I got this for my kids to make pictures with all the half crayons we have. We can make mix the crayons to make new colors or just use the color of the crayon. We use q-tips to decorate everything. You can use it on plastic, paper, craft foam, just about anything.
