<<She goes to Lowe's or Home Depot
and buys the wax rings used for sealing toilets (really cheap and a good
soft wax). She melts the wax in a crock pot and brushes a thick coat onto
mat board. The students (5th graders) use nailheads to press the yarn into
the wax.>>

Does the wax ever really harden enough to become dry? Just wondering if it
would remain sticky.... Of course if the yarn completely covered the
matboard, that would take care of part of the problem.

Just curious....
