using wax

When you guys use wax do you re use the wax you peel off the ducks? How much wax should i get? theres a chick with 9 pounds for 5 bucks on craigslist that sounds pretty good as long as they aren't weirdly shaped and smell funny.

That's quite a bit of wax, we buy a few of the bars of Gulf wax at the grocery store when we do it. You're just melting enough wax to create a wax layer on top of the water in the pot, doesn't take much.

Of course we're not doing a lot of ducks, less than 10 at a time so if you've got a bunch to do having more wax to replenish that layer would be necessary.

For 5 bucks, just get that wax and you might be set for a while depending on how quickly you go through it. I know the parafin wax we get at the grocery store is quite a bit more than 50 cents a pound.
