I love the sticky wax it is the best stuff I ever used for touch dubbing Mr. Peacock or Ice dub either one it grabs and holds on and if you make a dubbing loop put wax on both legs of loop and touch dub 2 different colored dubbings then twist it up it gives a great 2 tone body

I have also been using the Sticky this week; lightly dubbing mole onto Pearsall's silk for some traditional North Country spiders. And using the Dark wax to deepen the body colour of some Greenwell Spiders and Needle Browns. I am personally very happy with this year's blends. I gave some to a few friends and now some of their friends want some. So I will probably be brewing a few small batches before Christmas. I think I will tweak the Whipping formula a little. But I'm not sure whether (or how) I should try to improve the Light, Dark and Sticky blends. Your constructive criticism would be most welcome. Thanks again for the feedback.

Could I buy One of each type in the next batch? Thanks.

Well, I didn't intend this as a commercial venture. Would I have to post on the trading floor to legitimitize this transaction?

According to RRSHSlayer you can! I will increase the size of my batches and pour a few extra tubes. Maybe the tyers who have already received some of my dubbing wax could help me determine a fair price?

I know I would have no problem paying $8 for the 4 tubes I got and feel I didn't get ripped

 

So let's make it $8 for four tubes of dubbing wax (Dark, Light, Sticky and Whipping). Plus $2 for S&H. Is that agreeable to you bluegill?

I'm curious if you have or are selling your wax blends

 

Are you saying you are interested in buying some? Actually, what I sent will likely last you years! But, no I am not selling my blends. (Although the idea of custom-blending dubbing wax to match a tyer's specific needs has crossed my mind.) Don't be confused by the packaging- I just like to do things right, with a bit of polish.

 

Well, it wasn't my intention to sell my waxes but I have received a few requests and made up more of my dubbing wax. I would like to share what's left and will probably offer them on the Trading Floor in a couple of days.
