    Wow, I never thought about using candle wax before, but I guess it works. 

    If you buy actual sealing wax, there’s a much higher pigment content, so they’re not as transparent, and are much richer looking.

    Also, if you’re thinking about putting them through the post, I would look into the false sealing wax gluesticks. They’re supposed to be much more fexible, and less likeky to shatter and crumble if you mail them.

    Pink and grey is fine, just maybe not a pink that fluorescent.

    I strongly recommend using colored glue instead of wax.  For one thing, wax will crumble in the mail.  For another, glue is much cheaper and easier to work with.  We used it in hot glue guns and it worked really well.  You can order it online although I think michael’s might carry it as well.

    @Tranquility: I like brown and pink even better. 🙂 Gold will go great as well though! 🙂
