Seeking waxes of US state charms


#1

Does anyone know where I can get wax patterns of all fifty US
states? I need them for a project, and can’t find them in any of the
catalogs I have here (Wilson/TCD, Au-Rus and JewelCast).

Hi Kathy, If you are unable to find them already made, it might be
feasible to make them yourself with sheet wax. It’s usually
transparent/translucent (depending on thickness) and you could place
the wax over the outline of the state and cut it with an X-Acto
knife. Finding the state outlines in the proper scale could be a
challenge, but I know several illustration packages (i.e., CorelDraw)
have these in their clip-art libraries, and can be scaled as needed,
then printed out.

Just a backup plan if you can’t find what you’re seeking!

All the best,
Dave
