Beeswax Bar, 1 ounce, Scented, deters tangling and makes thread easier to work with. Prior to beginning beadwork, hold thread against the bar and place your thumb over it. Pull Fireline
or nylon thread
over the bar several times until it is coated in wax. Recoat throughout beadwork. Also great for knotting. Make a square knot in your thread and trim as closely as possible with your nipper tool. Bring a lighter close (not touching) to the knot and watch it form a neat ball. Remove excess wax from beadwork with warm water.
