Wax Play for Everyone

Curious about wax play? Just starting out? Maybe you’ve played with wax before and want to do more? Then this class is for you!

We’ll go over how to build a wax kit for home or travel. You’ll learn about what you need for safety, play, and clean up - plus some fun items for wax oriented scenes. Once we are done checking out what to stock, we’ll cover safety 101 and facts about wax.*

Then we’ll put what we reviewed in action. Our demo will go through how to set up your play area, ways to pour wax on a willing partner and how to clean up when you’re done. 

As a reminder, wax play is edge play! No matter how ‘safely’ applied, hot wax does carry a burn risk. In this class we’ll only be covering paraffin and soy candles. Beeswax candles will not be covered in this course.
