Hey guys I'm shada and today I have another calligraphy tutorial for you sort of I'm going to be showing you how to use wax seal to seal your envelopes in your snail mail I think you guys are going to love it so let's just get started adding a wax seal to your envelopes is a beautiful way to add a finishing touch to your hand lettered pieces and this is a really fun crafty process that's completely out of another era now all of the supplies that you're going to see me use in today's tutorial are from a company called eunuch ooh and I will link them in the description below they're a small funky company and they make these classic stamps as well as all the colorful black PSA's that go with them now there's a few different methods for applying the wax and that's what we're going to talk about today I'm also going to share my favorite stamp designs and there's even a giveaway so stay tuned to the end of the video for info about that so i'll start today by lighting a candle it's just nice to have a source of flame when you're doing this project and the first method that i'm going to show you is the wax stick that has a wick inside of it so it looks very much like a candle and you're going to light it start by lighting the wick and then you're going to rotate the wax stick in your hands a little bit or in your fingers and you'll see quite quickly that it starts to drip and you're just going to keep the stick tilted towards your paper I'm just using scrap paper to practice here and you'll just rotate the the wax and let the the wick heat the stick and it'll slowly start to drip and pull on the page now I must say this is a very slow and meditative process really is something out of another time and it's sort of fun to sit there and pretend that you're in a tower castle somewhere and you're writing a letter to your sweetheart and you don't have an inbox full of emails so you don't have a cell phone beeping at you but just have fun and be patient with this you may take the wax stick and sort of do what I'm doing here and rub the wax and sort of help it to Poole outwards and form a circle on the page but once you get the wax to be somewhat circular and about the size of one of your stamps you can set the stick aside and then grab one of your stamps I've got a whole bunch here that I'm excited to try and you're just going to take it and press it firmly into the pool of Wax nothing special here you don't have to press really hard after a moment after its cooled you can take it off and it should look pretty much like that now this is one of those times I know I always say this but it really is a time for perfectly imperfect every stamp will be a little bit different every seal will be a little bit different and that's the beauty of it here I'm doing another one on my scrap paper just to practice and I'm going to use my bumble bee stamp which is a really classic design and I love the way that looks it just turned out really beautiful okay so here I'm moving on to a real envelope I'm going to take my gold wax and I'm just I've got my envelopes sealed and I'm putting some wax on the fold there letting it cool and then pressing gently into the wax I'm using my pineapple stamp and you can see for this one you know I sort of missed the top but it doesn't matter they're all going to be a little different that's what I like about them so here's the second method for applying the wax you have a wax stick that doesn't have a wick inside you take a little chunk off just use an exacto knife to cut it and you've got a little metal bowl here that you can hold over a tea light or over a candle and once the wax has melted completely you just pour it onto your page in a circular motion to make that little circular pool of wax and then of course the stamp is the same you're just going to press firmly and give it a second to dry this is my F design for shada s pre shada oh I think I did it upside down but that's okay I'm just doing it on scrap paper that one turned out very nice I have a little extra green wax here so I'm going to do another one on scrap paper and with this one you can really see I don't get a perfectly circular shape with my wax puddle I've got some drips there but when I add the stamp it all sort of comes together to create a really nice look and that's my snowflake stamp and even the drip there it creates a very beautiful feel and I think the snowflake would be lovely for a winter or holiday invitation now I'm going to take some gray wax and melt it and I'm going to try doing this on a real envelope so I've got my envelopes sealed and I'm just applying the wax at the fold in a circular motion now when it comes to these two methods for applying wax I think you have a little more control with the wax that you pour out of the bowl but that one you also have to do cleanup so once you've applied your seal you're going to heat the bowl up again and.
