use a regular glue stick instead of a stick of wax — it’ll get the rest of the wax out and clean out the gun. but i’ve never heard of being able to pour hot wax into a mold for future use…

I’ve never heard of a mold either. You could always try to make your own using one of the leftover sticks and some molding plaster (well lubricated), but frankly I think it would be more trouble than it’s worth. If there’s any of the stick still sticking out of the gun where you can get at it, cut it off, and then just stick a regular glue stick in there to push it out, melted. Glue sticks are really inexpensive, at least.

When I was at Paper Source they told me that once I use my glue gun for the wax seal I can no longer use my glue gun for glue stick. That glue gun is "pretty much ruined" according to them.
