Refresh your food wraps with a new coat of wax and extend their life. This DIY project is fun and perfect to do with friends or family. This wax bar is made from wax, resin and oils - and no bees wax! That's right, it's fully plant-based and vegan! The wax's consistency is perfect for the right amount of stickiness - not too sticky or too dry. So it will stick perfectly without cracking. 

Each WRAPPA Yourself Wax Bar will make approximately 6-10 wraps. It will change depending on the fabric used, the technique and the size of wraps.

Technique 1: Grate + Iron

You will need:
– 1 bar of WRAPPA yourself plant-based wax
– A grater
– Light cotton fabric (homespun or calico is ideal)
– Iron + flat surface (ironing board or table)
– Towel or old cloth to protect your ironing board or table
– 2 sheets of baking paper (bigger than your piece of fabric)
– Clothes-line (or something to hang on) + pegs

Step 1: Place an old towel or cloth on your ironing board (or table). Next place the sheet of baking paper, followed by your wrap fabric.

Step 2: Grate and spread a fine layer of wax on to the fabric. Start with a little (you can always add more as you need). 

Step 3: Cover with the second sheet of baking paper, and make sure your iron is on the hottest setting - and no steam. Start to iron the sheets in slow circular movements, and you will see the wax melt and spread across the fabric. Lift the paper to check the thickness and make sure the whole fabric is coated - the wax will go through the fabric and coat both sides, so there is no need to flip the fabric. Make sure not to use too much wax or it will be too thick! 

Step 4:  Remove the fabric from the baking paper and hang it up to dry for a few minutes and you’re good to go!

 

Technique 2: Melt + Brush

You will need:
– 1 bar of WRAPPA yourself plant-based wax
– An ovenproof container
– Light cotton fabric (homespun or calico is ideal)
– 1 sheet of baking paper (bigger than your piece of fabric)
– 1 pastry brush
– Clothes-line (or something to hang on) + pegs

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees (180 Celsius) place your wax bar into an oven proof container and into the oven. Within a few minutes the bar should be completely melted. Once melted, remove from the oven. Another option is to melt the wax in a metal bowl over a saucepan of boiling water.  NOTE: do not put the wax in the microwave. 

Step 2: On the table lay out your baking paper and place your wrap fabric on top. 

Step 3: Use your pastry brush to paint the melted wax onto the fabric. The wax will seep through the fabric and coat both sides. Make sure not to make it too thick! 

Step 4: Remove it from the baking sheet and hang it to dry for a few minutes
