Reclaiming Wax

Today I reclaimed some old candles while I was working on my doll.

Water and plaster do not mix. I soak the plaster mold in water, then dab out the excess water before I pour molten wax in the mold. When the wax starts to setup, but is still soft, I score it with a knife so that it can be broken into smaller pieces, for remelting later.
