Beeswax Processing

Tonight I've been processing my wax cappings.  I boiled them up in a vat of water at the weekend and tonight I processed the "raw" wax. 

I started by melting the raw wax and then pouring this through a metal mesh coffee filter. Then I poured the molten wax into a mold.

Tomorrow I'll freeze the block of wax (or is it an ingot?) to make it easier to remove from the mold.

And the finished product? 1 kg of lovely golden wax!
