Alcohol stove round for melting wax. It was born from the collaboration between artisans and master jewelers by designing objects of great value and style.
This important alcohol stove lends elegance and character to a useful and functional product for dissolving sealing wax.
We recommend using 90% pure alcohol for a stable, odorless flame; this will not change the color of the sealing wax.
The round alcohol stove is a useful accessory that can also be used with a spoon; just heat it to melt the sealing wax easily.
It is the brainchild of master jewelers Bortoletti and is a true gem of design, made entirely by hand in the workshop by skilled artisans.
An important accessory for your desk and an ideal product for making a perfect seal.
It is recommended to use at least 90% pure alcohol for a stable, odorless flame.
The round alcohol stove will make perfect wax seals without altering the color even when using white wax.
As a final touch to the wax seal, it is possible to highlight the relief of the initials using gold or silver cream.
The frieze and stopper are made of cast white bronze, handcrafted and chiseled by Bortoletti art masters.
The use of sealing wax was widespread in the past; it was mainly used to seal important documents and wine bottles.
The preparation of the sealing wax is quite simple; resins, mineral fillers and colored pigments are ground together.
The whole is mixed by heat and poured into molds to give the shape of a stick; for metallic colors, aluminum or bronze powder is added.
A good sealing wax for letters should drip quickly even directly over the flame without burning, remain liquid to have time to imprint the seal.
Today, sealing wax is mainly used to decorate gift packages, wine bottles and to seal wedding invitations.
