Ranger does not recommend melting BeesWax directly in the Melting Pot. Wax can be flammable at temperatures higher than 300 degrees. For safer melting, use a Project Pan inside the Melting Pot to diffuse the heat levels for lower temperature meltables. Always keep safety in mind and dont leave a heated Melting Pot unattended. See Tips & Techniques with Melt Art BeesWax for specific, detailed melting instructions. Also use Project Pans to get the best results when melting candle wax, candle gel, soap, glue, crayons and chocolate. Remember, if using a project pan for chocolate, dedicate that Project Pan to food only, not craft products.
