Dop Wax Recipe

Dop wax is a type of wax used to hold stones in place while they are being cut and polished. To make dop wax, melt 1 part beeswax and 2 parts rosin together over low heat until the mixture is completely melted. Then add a few drops of pine oil or turpentine for added flexibility and scent.

Finally, pour the hot liquid into molds formed from small containers such as film canisters or plastic lids to form individual dops when cooled. The resulting dops should be flexible enough to accommodate various sizes of stones but hard enough not to break easily during cutting and polishing.

Making your own dop wax is an easy and affordable way to create a perfect seal for jewelry making. This homemade recipe can be made with just a few simple ingredients that are readily available in any craft store or online. With the right supplies, you will be able to make enough wax to last you quite some time!
