Interesting. Wax I have purchased here (Sweden) initially almost
immediately hardened to the extent of being to hard to press. I
actually broke one mirror trying to press (cheap small piece
I did not care about luckily). I learned at that point wax can
be too hard to press. I suspect wax is about as variable as
the density of honey.
