I'm not sure what the foundation material is made of. It is tan colored with some brown streaks running through it and has a 'waxy' smell to it. It is not slick like plastic, rather waxy feeling. Do the companies make 'wax foundation' or is that something strictly made by bees?Be advised the bees don't really like the plastic foundation (I assume what it is).
They only use it when have no other choices and do it reluctantly.
You may or may not care, but at least be aware.
If want to use it - it still takes some learning.
I would not be too excited just yet.
Wax foundation is better.
If anyone, LJ has much to add on this very subject.
