Sealing Wax - Ron Wilson's Card to Wallet

Discuss your favorite close-up tricks and methods.

Postby Robert Kane » 02/02/02 05:28 AM

I am working on learning Ron Wilson's Card to Wallet routine as described in The Uncanny Scot.

One of the nice touches in Ron's routine is to seal the envelope with sealing wax and then stamp your initials in to the wax.

Appreciate any suggestions on where you get sealing wax and a sealing stamp graven with initials. I have tried several artist supply houses and one stationary store here in Miami without much luck.

Thanks also to Ron Wilson for sharing such a wonderful routine with many touches to make the effect special and memorable.

Hi Pete:

Well, I am moving back to the San Francisco Bay Area in two weeks so melting won't be a problem. My personal sense of melting is one of the main reasons why I am moving back home. I miss that old San Francisco Fog...and Buma, Jr. at House of Magic on Chestnut Street of course.

Remember Club53 in Pleasant Hill, Ca? I'll never forgot your killer version of Card in Mousetrap. The look on the face of that waitress was worth the price of admission.

All the best and regards, Robert Kane :)

Robert,

I live in San Mateo, about 15 mins south of SFO, and there's a stationery store here with sealing wax and metal stamps that's just what you're looking for.

Drop me a line when you've moved in.

I dropped by the shop in the local mall, just to make sure that they still had the sealing wax and seals. They did, and they also had a small flyer with the website of the company that makes them.

Go to: www.nostalgicimpressions.com
and you'll find a company that makes seals, sealing wax, and even will make you a custom seal with the initials you specify.

For the bizarrists, there's a seal of an ankh and another of a Celtic cross.

They're located in the US, so overseas customers can order from them, but the cost is high.
