PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE YOU BEGIN TAKING YOUR IMPRESSION
- Lay out contents.
- Place large piece of parchment paper over the size guide.
- Remove parchment paper with wax from container.
- Warm wax by rolling the wax between clean fingers. You can use a heat device, such as a hair drier if you need to.
- The wax is to stay in ball form and become malleable. Remove any cracks in the wax to create a smooth surface.
- Make sure the persons finger is not too dry - you can moisten by wetting with water or using moisturiser.
Once the wax is malleable, evenly roll into a cylinder-like appearance. Then, place the wax over the bar pendant design on the size guide and press each finger into the wax. Slowly and gently lift fingers off the wax. The size guide is recommended so that the impression does not become too thin and unusable.
ALL OTHER IMPRESSIONS
Once the wax is malleable, place the wax over your chosen size of design and evenly press finger into the wax. Slowly and gently lift fingers off the wax. The size guide is recommended so that the impression does not become too thin and unusable.
Double (back-to-back) impression (pendant only)
Once the wax is malleable, evenly press both fingers together on either side of the same wax ball at the same time. Slowly and gently lift fingers off the wax and place on the size guide. The size guide is recommended so that the impression does not become too thin and unusable.
Multiple impressions on one side
Once the wax is malleable, place the wax over your chosen size of design and evenly press fingers into the wax in a design you like. The size guide is recommended so that the impression does not become too thin and unusable.
Please ensure the impression reaches the correct size of the size guide so it stays proportion with the ring.
- Repeat this process with the other wax. This spare mould is in case one gets damaged during processing.
- The way the wax impression looks is as your finished piece will. If you do not like the look of it, retake the impression until you are happy.
- If you have a preferred mould, write number 1 on the top of the lid.
- If you would like an initial, also write this on top of the lid (single sided impressions only).
- Once you have finished place in the fridge until you are ready to return to HALI MOTIF - please do not at any point leave them in a heated area.
RETURNING TO HALI MOTIF
- When you are ready to post, remove impression from the fridge and carefully lift the wax impressions from parchment paper. Very carefully wrap wax back in the smaller pieces of parchment paper with-out squishing the wax and place back in the container.
