|The wax block in the plastic container in a pan of simmering water; after a while the wax had melted.|
|I then carefully poured the wax into the mould then left it to cool and set|
|Once the wax was fully set I banged the mould hard and out popped the 5 blocks of Beeswax.|
|I then repeated the process to make a total of 10 blocks!|
From here I'm not sure what to do with them; I could make candles or try to make soap and other cosmetics. There is also the option of sending it back to the people that make wax foundation and they will swap it back into foundation to be used again in the hive. Whatever I do with it I had fun making the blocks and they will store well in their current form. I'm hoping that sometime later in the year I will be able to make some blocks out of my own Beeswax.
