Many people have played with a bit of candle wax at one time or another in their lives. Maybe by putting a finger in the pool of wax at the top of a candle. Maybe by catching a drip of wax on their skin by accident. Maybe even by dripping a bit of wax on themselves on purpose. Well, it's the intentional wax play we're going to talk about here. So if you're interested in playing with wax on a partner, or even if you just want to play with some on yourself, we have a few bits of advice we'd like to pass along to get you started on the right path. If it turns you on–or might turn you on–to drip molten wax from a burning candle onto the pink and delicate bits of your partner
here are a couple of things to remember if you are going combine wax play into your Femdom lifestyle
Basic Safety Tips
Make sure you keep your candles and/or crock pot on a level, stable surface. Keep ice, cold towels and a bowl of water nearby. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy. Be very careful about lingerie, as some items will melt or burn, sticking to the skin and causing serious burns. Anything with nylon, vinyl, pvc, patent leather, etc. can be a problem. Of course having your partner naked usually solves this problem. Keep your basic first aid kit handy and read up on simple burns just in case you need to handle one (competently).
Oiling the skin before waxing someone makes removal easier later. Massage oils seem to stay cooler than baby oil which gets hot under wax. Remember that if your partner is hairy you'll really want to use oil unless a painful hair removal scene is part of the plan another idea is waxing or hair removal is not an option is to cover you sub first in Gladwrap (cling wrap/saran wrap). Test your candles to see how long they take to develop a pool of wax so you'll know how far in advance you may need to light them.
Crock Pots / Fondue Pots
These are great for melting large quantities of wax all at once. The ones with temperature control knobs and dials are ideal (but check that their controls are accurate). Usually the lowest setting is all you'll need. Grocery stores and hardware stores in your area may carry bulk wax, if not then a craft store should have it. Once you have a nice pot of melted wax you can work on getting the colors you want by adding some melted Crayola crayons to the mix (these are non-toxic). Be aware that some darker colors may stain the skin for a few days. Also remember that pouring or brushing a lot of wax on someone all at once is more intense than dripping it on slowly. The sensations from this will also take longer to subside as it takes longer for the wax to cool.
Ice cubes can be used to confuse a blindfolded partner, giving them cold when they expect heat. Although actually they may find it hard to distinguish between the two, particularly the longer the scene goes on. Ice can also help lift the wax off the skin later. Other removal tool ideas include using ice scrappers, fingernails. You can also whip, paddle, spank or flog the wax off, but remember that the skin under the wax may be very sensitive. Peeling the wax off, can be as much fun as dropping it. As it pulls away from the skin, the sensation is very intense, and running a feather or even a tongue over this sensitized skin is a very sexy way to prolong the waxing session.. While some people use brushes to apply wax from their crock pot, one thing I like to do is to apply the wax with my own hands. If you can stand the heat, then coating your hands with melted wax and touching, stroking, gripping your partner's flesh with them creates some interesting sensations…for both of you. Another thing you may want to do is combine a _short_ Saran warp mummification session with the waxing. Doing this at the end of a long waxing will cause your partner's body temperature to rise and it will make them sweat profusely. If you began by oiling their skin before the waxing then this will make the wax just about fall off them when you unwrap them. A flea comb can be used to remove wax from hair soak the area in in oil first. An old credit card for scrapping may also be of use…it has flex and will not damage you subs now tender skin.
Clean Up Tips
Drop cloths are a good thing. Disposable ones make things easy, but if you have an old plastic coated shower curtain liner these work pretty well too. Remember that if you get wax on clothing or cloth drop cloths you'll need to remove as much as you can before trying to clean them. Wax will clog your shower drains and your washing machine (household appliances can't consent so try not to abuse them). An iron and some wax paper, or a brown paper bag or newspaper can be used to remove wax from carpets (though stains from colored wax may remain).Melting temps of wax
