Wax is nice

I really like working with wax but it's pretty much disposable.

The best art gift I was ever given consisted of insect exoskeletons on wax. Even when it disintegrated it was beautiful.

The best thing I've found about wax is that it soaks into porous materials like leather or paper.

Pictured here is a large chunk of craft wax, bees wax for book binding, various candles and two types of old-fashioned household waxes.
