To add a random wick to an unknown wax is great for some fun... to me, this is a science & an art form. Anything that flows from my pouring pot & finds its way into my shop is the real deal & the best it can possibly be.

On the odd occasions I am not waxing lyrical, I am doing the things most of you are & sharing time with two Jack Russells. Now, DON'T get me going about them...
