Wrappa Vegan DIY Wax Mix

If you want to make your own wraps this is the perfect bar for you. This plant based bar is the mix of oils Wrappa use to make their amazing reusable wraps. The wax contains plant waxes, tree resin and jojoba oil. Pick your own fabric and away you go. 

Each bar will make approximately 6-10 wraps. This can vary depending on fabric used, technique and size of wrap

 

How To Make Your Own Wraps

Method 1: Grate + Iron

You will need:

  • 1 bar of plant-based wax
  • A grater
  • Light cotton fabric (homespun or calico is ideal)
  • Iron + flat surface (ironing board or table)
  • Towel or old cloth to protect your ironing board or table
  • 2 sheets of baking paper (bigger than your piece of fabric)
  • Clothes-line (or something to hang on) + pegs

 

Start off by placing an old towel or cloth on your ironing board or table and then place your fabric on top of one sheet of baking paper and grate a fine layer of wax on top of the fabric. Start out with less, you can always add more if you aren’t happy with the thickness and consistency of the wrap.

Cover with the other sheet of baking paper. Turn your iron on to the hottest heat setting and make sure your steam is off. and start to iron the baking paper / fabric sandwich in slow, circular movements. The wax will melt and spread itself evenly across the fabric making any uncovered sections obvious to the eye. Lift the paper to check the consistency and make sure the entire piece of fabric is coated. If you are finding you have some dry patches or your wrap is too thin, grate some more wax on troublesome areas and repeat the process. The trick is to not make it too thick – this is why most DIY wraps crack.

Cotton fabrics are absorbent so the wax will seep through on to the other side giving the entire piece of fabric a coating of wax. Remove the fabric from the baking paper and hang it up to dry for a few minutes and you’re good to go!

 

Method 2: Melt + Brush

You will need:

  • 1 bar of plant-based wax
  • An ovenproof container
  • Light cotton fabric (homespun or calico is ideal)
  • 1 sheet of baking paper (bigger than your piece of fabric)
  • 1 x pastry brush
  • Clothes-line (or something to hang on) + pegs

Place your bar of wax in an oven proof container and place into an oven that has been preheated to 180 degrees. Leave it in there until it melts completely (it should only take a few minutes). Alternatively, you could place the wax bar in a metal bowl and melt it over a saucepan of boiling water. NOTE: do not put the wax in the microwave.

While your wax is melting, on a flat surface, lay out your baking paper and place a piece of fabric on top. Once the wax has completely melted, use your pastry brush to paint on the wax evenly. Cotton fabrics are absorbent so the wax will seep through on to the other side giving the entire piece of fabric a coating of wax. The trick is to not make it too thick – this is why most DIY wraps crack. Once you have a nice, even coat of wax remove it from the baking paper and hang to dry for a few minutes and you’re good to go!
