The Stockmar Beeswax Modelling Clay is a big favourite in our family.
The natural smell, the variation in texture depending on how warm or cold the modelling beeswax is, the lumnosity - all these things please the senses!
We are very pleased to be supplying this to our customers!
Here's what Stockmar says about their product:
"Experiencing art through all the senses - this is what children achieve with Stockmar Modelling Beeswax. With its pleasant beeswax scent and perfectly clean handling, it is an ideal material for modelling. Scent, colour and consistency work together when moulding. The warmth of the hands melts the wax and makes it malleable and when the wax hardens, the luminosity and fine brilliance remain. The little works of art maintain their beauty and charm and can be reshaped again and again. The high pedagogical and artistic quality makes Stockmar Modelling Beeswax unique and unmatched."
We soften the wax by holding it in our hand, or placing it on some waxed paper in the sun (for a short time! Be careful it doesn't get too hot and melt.) Then we shape it into models, allow to harden and we can play with our models. When we want to change them we warm them up, and the wax is ready to shape into something else.
An absolute must-have for your crafting supplies AND this wax is also very popular as a sensory item. It can be carried in a small plastic container, or a tin in the pocket, and be played with without making a mess of the hands or the surroundings.
