Melt wax in a melting pot in a water bath
Once the wax is melted, blend in the pigment (if you want a colour)
Then add HOT water in a 1:1 ratio with the wax in the pot
The water will cause the wax to rise to the surface, making it easier to dip the bulbs
Dip the bulbs two or three times for the best coverage. Let dry.
Waxed bulbs are a gorgeous, timeless trend. They require neither soil nor water and will come to full bloom; you can use hyacinths or amaryllis bulbs. Place the bulbs someplace warm and bright when finished. We've waxed several hyacinths, which look lovely grouped together. The wax can be dyed with candle pigment and we have several colours from which to choose. METHOD: Put the wax in a melting pot (or a tall metal container) and melt in a water bath. Add pigment if desired. When the wax is completely melted, add an equal amount of water to the wax in the container. The wax will rise to the surface and you can begin dipping the bulbs. NOTE! It is important for the water to be HOT; if it is cool, the wax will harden. You may need to dip the bulbs two or three times for full coverage. Let the wax harden between each round. Set the bulbs aside to dry when you are done.
