Sorry I have taken so long to reply to your post about Mitsuro wax,
but i was busy with a show and was just overwhelmed with work.
I have made mitsuro following a different formula than the one you
mention. I used beeswax, paraffin and rosin. I did not use any of
the microcrystalline wax which you used. I got the rosin in a little
cake forms from a shop which sells string instruments. It is used
on violin, bows, and as I understand it, is made from refined pine
resin. I melted equal amounts of beeswax and rosin together over low
heat, stirring to get them completely combined. Then I added the
paraffin-- in small amounts to start with. When it was completely
melted and combined with the mix, I removed a bit -let it cool and
tested it by rubbing between my fingers. If it stuck to my fingers I
just added some more of the paraffin until it reached a stage where
it was real stretchy and had little lines in it like pulled taffy. I
then poured it through cheese cloth onto some aluminum foil forming a
sheet. When it cooled I broke it into smaller pieces.
Hope this helps.
