About This Product
Compatible with all kinds of sealing wax, this ultra-simple circular stamp shows off your wax or serves as a blank canvas for your ideas. We like to embed flowers, herbs, or other small plants into the hot wax for an organic look.
The stamp itself is weighty and pleasant to use, with a cast iron stamp head and a contoured rosewood handle. You can pair it with any of Fiona Ariva's waxes, stoves, and spoons to create your complete wax sealing set.
This stamp comes in gift-ready packaging, with a cotton storage bag and a sturdy cylindrical tube. We love the blend of old-world sophistication and contemporary style; it's a unique combination that makes these stamps feel really special in use.
Australian designer Fiona Ariva has been creating this distinctive line of stamps, waxes, and accessories since 2018, and we're pleased to be the first U.S. retailer to stock them. Check out our current selection of Fiona Ariva products here, and look out for more designs and colors in the near future.
This stamp is 1" in diameter and features a completely blank head. Only the stamp, bag, and tube are included; the other pictured accessories and waxes are sold separately.
How to Make Wax Seals
Actually, it's pretty easy when you have the right tools!
First: melt the wax in your metal spoon, using a small candle or tealight for heat. If you're using wickless wax sticks, like those that come with Fiona Ariva Wax Sealing Kits, rub the tip of the wax against the hot spoon until you melt enough to make a seal. If you're using wax granules, drop them into the spoon (we suggest using 4 granules per seal) and gently move the spoon around until they melt.
Second (and this is the most fun step): pour the wax from your spoon onto the envelope. Start your pour on the envelope flap, so the wax will weigh it down and start the sealing process. Then, once the flap is lying flat, you can pour faster and let the wax pool out. Each pour is different.
Third: gently place the stamp on the hot wax and wait for it to cool. Then you can pull the stamp out of the wax to reveal your finished seal.
You can make your seals even better by mixing different waxes for multicolored effects or by pressing flower petals and herbs into the hot wax. There's lots of room for experimentation, and it's easy to make something beautiful!
