dipping dilemma-cane makers please help!


Recommended Posts

Hi. Made my flower cane but still getting some "runs" that look kind of wavy when I take the cane out of the wax dip. I made the shell using 160 mp wax with uv and slight color. Added flowers with beeswax, warmed the shell slightly and over-dipped in 140 mp clear wax melted to 200 degrees for 15-20 seconds and then dipped into cool water. My camera doesn't take good enough pictures to show this but they are there and more on the back than the front. Not sure what to do differently to stop this. Thanks for any advice as I do want to perfect this step. Beth
