I'd like to release my homebrew wax recipe.

Hello, everyone.

It's been five years since I wrote about my homebrew wax in 2013.



I succeeded in making homemade wax. I thought I could compete with commercial wax but not be more capable of making it any better.
So I finished my Homebrew wax project by releasing my homebrew wax recipe on my blog.




There are two versions of my wax recipe, one containing material that is difficult for the individual to get, and the other that is relatively easy to get.
I would like to open up a wax recipe consisting of relatively easy to find materials. There are only 4 materials required, and no special tools are needed. But it's even better if you have a precise scale.






If you want to follow my recipes and share your results with us, I would be happy to open them.
If anyone wants to follow my recipe and make wax, please leave a comment.



Thanks for reading.


June Kim

I would love to see the recipe or better yet a photographed step-by-step with instructions

Do you have any videos of water behaviour?

Of course, I'll explain how to make it step by step.
I have a video of water behavior on the test panel.
Left side is for my wax, right side for non wax.

Thank you for your interest.

I think the combination of the bright lights of the night and DSLR camera played a greater role. Thanks for your interest.

That looks incredible!

Is it just me or is the waxed side a bit hazy? Could I be wrong? Did you measure durability?

I think it's because the background is reflected. The waxed side is clear.

I didn't do a thorough durability test. I think it is similar to or slightly better than P21S Concours look or Blackfire midnight sun. Thanks for your interest.

My Wax recipe may be so simple that you might be disappointed.
But if you make it, you'll feel it. It's a real wax.

The method of making wax is also simple.



Preparation

I weighed 14.9 g of carnauba wax flakes T3 and transfer it to an empty wax container.






After weighing 8.3g of paraffin wax, I placed it in the container.





I weighed 52.8 g of kerosene to be used as a solvent for wax. That iron bowl is a wax-melting container. The amount of kerosene does not have to be very exact. I think it is suitable to add kerosene in the range of 52 to 54 grams.





I added 0.91g of silicone oil. The silicone oil I used is ShinEtsu's KF-96 100cs.







I placed the prepared carnauba wax flakes and paraffin wax in a bowl containing kerosene and silicone oil. It is recommended to melt a high melting point wax first, and then melt low melting point wax. But so far there has not been a problem to melt waxes at once.





Melting





While melting waxes I stirred with wooden chopstick continuously to make materials mix well and melt waxes quickly.





I stopped heating when the wax melted completely. And I stirred it with wooden chopstick for about 1 minute to make the materials mix well. Then, I poured the melted wax into the wax container.





Cooling





The wax had cooled and turned a sweet vanilla color. You can wait until the wax is firm and then cover it with a lid.







If you put your nose close to it, it smells of kerosene, but It is not all that bad.



That's about it.
I look forward to your feedback.



Thanks.
