    Default Wax cracking as it cools.

    I melted down a small amount of my cappings in a double boiler setup. As it cools it is cracking. I have done this before and got a nice solid block. Anyone know what I did wrong this time? Thanks J

    The wax is cooling too fast.

    Thanks. That's what I was thinking too. I will remelt it and leave it in the warm water to cool more gradually.
