Handmade

This is it! The "Tackee Wax" product that you can use to bead bowls, pottery, and gourds. This is a special mixture that includes beeswax and pine pitch. It is designed to adhere to surfaces like gourd, paper mache, bone, or wood. Then you press in small beads, such as seed beads. This wax compound will hold them. Beeswax alone won't work, because it isn't tacky enough and won't hold the beads for the long term.
The Huichol Indians in Mexico have practiced this art for many years. They decorate and use beaded ceremonial bowls, known to them as rakure, or jicara in Spanish. They were originally decorated with colorful bits of shell, bone, clay, turquoise, etc.

We offer Tackee Wax in a 1.2 ounce bar, enough for 2-3 small bowls or egg gourds. You apply it in a thin layer, about 1/2 to 3/4 the thickness of the beads. there is another listing if you would like to buy single bars.
An instruction sheet is included to give you the basics of applying the mixture, laying the beads, and the finishing touches. A good awl that picks up your beads makes the job a lot easier, but you can get started with a toothpick right away. I sell beading awls that keep the beads from sliding up the awl. If you don't see the awl listed let me know so I can relist it.

This listing is for 10 bars of wax. They come in white and golden (beeswax color)
IF you choose a mix you will get half white and half gold. I can send a different mix if you let me know.

I ship Priority padded envelope for $8.00 if I can't get your order in one envelope I will contact you.
