I have been making my own shape cutters with metal and then cutting wax pieces. I am using the very thin and fragile pink wax. Afterwards, I am doubling them into a sort of fan shape. It ends up making the pieces dimensional. I use my heat gun to fuse them together, but this is not working well enough. They will never make it through shipping no matter how well I pack the box. Even then I worry some will get broken before the caster can make a mold, even if they would somehow survive the voyage.
My solution is to melt down some blue or purple wax into 16 gauge sheets and use them instead. (Won't they be stronger from these waxes?) Then superglue the pieces and use the heat gun.
So my question is, will my solution work, or does anyone have a better one? It's necessary that these pieces remain very thin due to weight.
