Wax Shrinkage


Bramblebush ForumsFAQ

To cut a long story short I need to find easily available additives for candle wax that will reduce shrinkage when used to make patterns from metal molds. The under cuts keep breaking off due to wax shrinkage during cooling. Current wax shrinkage is approx 1.5 to 2%. What is likely to yield a solution, experimenting with different candle waxes or additives or none of the above. Can anybody help.
