Beeswax Questions?

Where to find Beeswax?
The most asked question. As this is a global page, we can’t tell for every place. Try to reach natural shops. Try to find internet resources. Try to ask for bee keepers in your area. If no one has it, send them this page and ask them to simply start offering beeswax. And maybe someone has already produced this game. It is open-source and therefore free for everyone to produce or sell it.
What can I use the beeswax for?
Beeswax is a connector. Therefore it can be used in many ways in your household or your surrounding. From fixing loose things, to tucking things on the wall, to completely redesign your space. In many cases, Beeswax is an easy and quick solution that doesn’t require drilling etc.

And it simply the magical artifact to play this wonderful game.

Is there an alternative for Beeswax?
We tried different things, but so far Beeswax seems to be the best option to play the game by far. We tested Blu Tack, we tested clay. Nothing came close. Yet, you might find an alternative and test yourself. If you succeed share your findings with #ccbeeswax on Social Media.
How to clean beeswax?
Be aware, that beeswax is a very sticky material. If you put it on walls etc. you might have marks. (If your paint on the wall is loose, you might even have a piece of paint on your beeswax, so be cautious, if you care about that)

To get rid of beeswax marks, the easiest is to find something scratchy that you soak into a mix of baking powder and vinegar (which is a super effective natural detergent anyway and recommended for household cleaning)

Is the beeswax healthy? Is it edible?
Yes, beeswax is very healthy. In fact, if you play the game, you actually play with a natural skin moisturizer. It is anti-microbial and water resistent. It is not anti-dirt though and might lose its anti-microbial effect after a while. You can wash beeswax with some soap, if you feel like. It is also edible, but not good for digestion. We recommend something else to eat instead. Like carrots or apples.

Very Important: Try to avoid extensive Heat or playing for long in the open sun. Your beeswax might melt and mix with anything around you.

Where to get the sticks
Nature, supermarket, tool shop, drug store, restaurants etc. It is very easy to find.
How can I cut the sticks?
Depends on your stick size. You can break them yourself, cut them with a good scissor, pliers or a saw for branches for instance.

#craftgamecards

Extension: Gamecards

The cards that you can use to play, get inspired, write, draw, hang with beeswax etc.

You can always reuse them. Just give them a quick wash and use them as often, as you feel like.

How is that possible?

Its the surface. It allows you to just wash things, when you are using kids pens, where the colour dissolves in water.

A non-permanent marker, like a whiteboard marker are not suitable for washing, but wiping (like a whiteboard). Its harder to erase, but ink is more protected. 

Use a permanent pen, if you want to keep your notes forever. 

#craftprototape

Extension for advanced play: Prototape

Prototape is self made cotton stripes soaked in beeswax. Its strong, sticky and lets you play the game on an advanced level.  

And here is how to make it:
