can anybody explain to me how can i make hollow tubes in wax?which
is the wax that i can use?<
I don’t know what size tubes you want to make but here’s a method
I’ve used to make some tubes. The wax I used was just some scraps I
had, I think they were pieces of spru wax.
Find a metal mandrel the inside diameter of the tube you want. An
nail or any metal the right diameter will work. It needs to be a
little longer than the desired tube. Be sure the mandrel is clean &
Melt the wax in a container that’s a little deeper than the length
of the tube you want.
When the wax is melted, dip the mandrel in the wax while holding it
perpendicular to the wax surface. Leave it a few seconds & withdraw
it, again perpendicular.
Let the withdrawn mandrel & wax cool a little. Re-dip & withdraw the
mandrel & wax a few times until the desired thickness is developed.
Allow time for cooling after each dipping.
Let the completed wax cool completely & remove from the mandrel.
This is a similar process to that used to make cndles by dipping.
