Comments about Product: As an art therapist with Waldorf teacher training, I really love using this product with both children, adults, and the infirm elderly, for both therapeutic and seasonal craft activities. The colors are bright and clear, and lend themselves well to making "stained glass" windows, sandwiching the pressed on colors between two pieces of acetate plastic. This wax is also excellent for decorating pillar candles... Since the modeling wax tends to harden when cool, and since many children and adults alike, have cold hands, I have found that keeping the wax warm and maleable, makes for a very satisfying experience and a successful project. To do this, simply place the wax on a cookie sheet over a bowl of warm water. And since the wax becomes very soft and smooth at body temperature, it poses NO risk of choking, as the wax will simply slip down the throat...and it's non-toxic...!
Comments about Product: Great color variety. Moldable after you hold it for a little while. The only con is it smells a bit like pine tar. I assume after a while it will where off but when you first open the box it is a bit off putting.
Comments about Product: I have kept this in my purse for several years, primarily to keep my kids quiet in church. It is clean to use and very engaging. Someone older will have to help smaller children get it warm enough to use, but once that is done, they will play for a long time. My kids like making fake fingernails and goofy noses with it.
