I thing the GREEN wax is for use in water (might be the BLUE
however). The RED is for making wire (squeeze out the wax as you
move across ((rapidly)) a sheet of glass). A bit faster or
slower movement or a bit more or less pressure will result in
larger or smaller diam. wax wire. Ther RED is very plastic, you
can tie a closed knot in it without it breaking! We have the set
of MATT tools, yes hight priced, but I must admit we can do some
pretty unique stuff. I saw a demo by the developer about 5 years
ago in San Francisco and I was amaized at all the different
things that the guy made. 2 piece rings (either side by side
rings OR one on top of another ((one could be white gold the
other regular)) stone setting potentials, custom basket and cup
settings, etc…). I must say lots of practice will be
required to get the proficency I saw at the show, but I was
really impressed! (Maybe I am just easy to impress?!). If you
need info on the waxes that Matt sells, contact them ans ask.
They have been pretty helpful. They also have a video, though I
must say I have not seen it.
Hope this helps.
