Hobby Highlight: Wax Seals

I have already talked about how Millennials can actually save the post office, even though the post office isn't exactly helping themselves - it's been 33 days and there are more horror stories. But one thing that can make letter writing fun is wax seals.

I do it. It makes getting the mail so much more fun for the recipient. I made a video on YouTube for my three viewers, but I also forgot I was working with fire, so it was a disaster:

This video is at 4 times speed. Melting wax can take a long time, but let me explain what I'm doing in here.

I use a napkin to hold the spoon because the spoon is metal, and metal gets very, very hot. I also keep other napkins around to set down the spoon and also clean it out as soon as I'm done using it - even though you don't have to. It can mix with the wax you add next time to make something beautiful.

I've also gotten more seal stamps since this video. I don't know. I just think it's a great and fun hobby.

What hobby's do you have? Would you be excited to get a letter with a wax seal on it?
