I’ve been trying out a bunch of different wax for seals as I want to seal each wedding invitation, when I get that far, with wax since it is a nice, affordable way to add a nice cosmetic touch. Plus, our wedding is going to be a literature theme and the wax seal on the envelope will be a great way to bring the theme to our invitations. So, this set of wax seal sticks and the spoon that came along with it was a great way to build my small collection of wax. The packaging was undamaged when it arrived, but it was also not very well packaged. The sticks were just shoved into a white plastic envelope that was sealed and shipped. Thankfully, the product was undamaged and on time.
This particular set comes with five seal sticks and a silver spoon for portioning the wax. The sticks are gold, silver, bronze, purple, and blue. Each of the sticks has a lovely design running down the side. The colors are pretty much consistent with the Amazon advertisement, but they are also shown in the pictures I posted. The silver spoon is just the right side to gather enough wax to create a nice seal with a stamp of your choosing (no stamp is included in this particular set). The sticks melt well when exposed to a lighter for heat, but they stay melted long enough to fill the spoon and pour without too much re-hardening on the surface of the spoon.
Overall, I would rate this product a 4 out of 5 stars. The wax works nicely, the sticks are easy to melt although I wish they had a wick. The packaging did leave a little bit to be desired though, for example, a box to keep the sticks in (even something flimsy and cardboard) would have been nice. Still, for $6.49 on Amazon, these are a very fair price for the quality of product that you are receiving. It is definitely a product I would consider ordering again if I needed more wax of one of the colors in this set.
