Temperature To Heat
With this one, there is no specific temperature to heat in order to liquefy. This wax, as it melts; only thins. Stirring is key with gel wax.
It is also important to keep a watchful eye on gel wax as it thins. Stirring frequently and monitoring will ensure the correct melting process.
Quicker By Eating
Gel wax does not thin quicker by heating at a higher temperature; gel wax will only smoke.
