Wax Disk

Melt a small amount of wax.

Float wax

Remove the wax pot from heat, set a spoon resting in the bottom of the wax and set aside to cool. When the bottom of the pot is lined with cloudy wax place it back on a heat source for a few seconds. Just the underside should melt. The moment you see liquid in the bottom, remove the wax pot from the heat source. Lift the wax out with the spoon. Remove the spoon and slightly shape the disk in a curve.

Place the disk on a fishbowl vase and design
