Here’s some more fun and interesting crap I’ve learned from being an Industrial Design student.
The block of white stuff in my left hand is Paraffin wax. It’s hard, kinda oily to the touch, and slippery. I believe women use it on their hands and/or feet or something when they get mani-pedis.
The yellowish white block in my right hand is Carnauba wax. It’s softer, stickier than Paraffin, and a bit rubbery. I have no idea what it’s used for aside from the use I’m about to explain.
If you melt 1 part Paraffin, 2 parts Carnauba, and add some petroleum jelly ‘to taste’ (you know what I mean. you don’t really taste it.) you’ll get a kind of wax that’s really good for modeling and some molding applications. Here’s what it looks like.
That’s all.
