Stockmar Modeling Beeswax ... natural art supplies for inquisitive children.
Experiencing art through all the senses - this is what children achieve with Stockmar Modeling Beeswax. With its pleasant beeswax scent and perfectly clean handling, it is an ideal material for modelling. Scent, colour and consistency work together when moulding. The warmth of the hands melts the wax and makes it malleable and when the wax hardens, the luminosity and fine brilliance remain. The little works of art maintain their beauty and charm and can be reshaped again and again.

Stockmar modeling beeswax has the benefit of added pure beeswax to it's product and is preferred by many Waldorf educators because of its pleasant scent and therapeutic qualities. When compared with the same weight of other modelling wax brands, Stockmar modelling beeswax has approximately one-third more volume, which therefore proportionally reduces the amount of material needed. Do take this into account when comparing prices - as well, Stockmar modelling beeswax contains no fillers or softeners. Stockmar modelling beeswax is the highest quality Waldorf art supplies.
Modelling beeswax is hard and must be kneaded strongly with warm hands to be made malleable. This process is made easier for smaller children by pre-warming the modeling wax in warm water. This also allows for a wonderful opportunity to read to your child while they are holding and kneading the wax in their hands.
Transforming the hard modeling beeswax into a soft, malleable form is a valuable sensory experience for children that trains their imaginative abilities and wakens their creativity and feeling for form. By kneading rhythmically, children also train their fine motor skills. This not only promotes skillfulness and dexterity, but also positively influences speech and thought development.
