Q: How does one best melt the wax beads? Microwave, double boiler, or?
At what temperature does the wax melt?
Am I assuming correctly that the wax is "food grade" quality?
A: This is a food grade sealing wax, with a melting point somewhere between 114-145 degrees. A double boiler is the idea method for melting this wax, as the microwave will melt it, but will not provide consistent heat keeping the wax in a liquid form.
