|I've been asked a few times for
a little saucepan to sit on the upturned iron in which to
stir up new colours. I've now got a few of these but I
have to buy them in a set of four different sizes from about
2" diameter to 3" diameter; so if you order a
saucepan, it might be a different size to the one that you
saw someone else using!
These little saucepans are made from
stainless steel. To make new blocks of colour, turn
iron on to "High", convert your iron to
hotplate mode (handle slides in under baseplate), stand
saucepan on upturned iron and drop pieces of wax blocks in
to saucepan. Wax will melt and you can stir the
colours together with something such as the scraper
tool. The colours mix as you would expect (blue and
yellow make green etc) and can be diluted with clear wax or
made into pastel (opaque ) colours by adding white wax.
Once you have your desired colour in it's
liquid state, pour the wax colour into a small mould - this
could be an ice-cube tray, paper sweet case, aluminium cake
case etc. when the wax is cooled and set, it should be
possible to remove the wax shape from the mould.
