Chemical Hybridization of Vegetavle Waxes & Oils/ Oil Pastels Research

Transesterification process being developed with vegetable waxes, oils such as castor oil, soywax, beeswax,corn oil, shellac -we are trying to create hybrids with melting point ranges of 30-40 deg.C such as found with cocoa butter.

Molten Crayon/ Oil Pastels Research

We are chemically hybridizing vegetable waxes and oils . The pigment source is molten crayons. The paper around the crayons can be removed with an exacto-knife.

We use hot trays ( local Walmart) which sell for $18 or so (USD). Ceramic cups from as local thrift store work well.
