Bacteriophage Wax Stamp

€35,64

What better way to seal your letters than with a bacteriophage wax seal! These microscopic, ubiquitous viruses, with their DNA/RNA-filled protein capsid heads and ominous-looking long tail fibers, are just the upgrade your letter-writing needed!

Wax seals make great gifts for people who already have everything, plus they give your stationery some classic science flair. 

Each seal comes in its own kraft box – sealing wax is sold separately so you can pick your signature color!

Seal Diameter 2.5 cm 
Materials Wood & Brass
Box Contains 1 wax seal

 

Sealing wax is sold separately so you can pick your signature color.

  1. Light the wick and with the burning end tilted toward your paper, allow a pool of wax to collect where you'd like your seal.
  2. When the pool of wax is a little more than 2 cm wide, press the seal into the center of the pool (if it's hot out, it works best to chill the seal a bit).
  3. Let the wax cool down for around 20 seconds, or until it has hardened.
  4. Peel back the seal and admire your handiwork!
