Default Mixing wax together

If I melt a high temp wax with a cold temp wax do I get an all temp wax?
In other words is it better to make one layer of multiple waxes or layers of different waxes?

Wax doesn't layer. It is absorbed into your base. Just buy an all temp if you're that lazy.

If you want an all temp wax, buy an all temp wax.

Don't waste otherwise good wax designed for a specific temp into your own concoction that you have no idea WHAT it is good for.

Be careful...don't let the wax smoke and don't use a flame...either us a double boiler method or an electric crock pot....smoking wax and open flame....is a NO NO. Wax is a petro chemical hydro carbon....BOOM!

I melt/combine 1# canning wax and all-temp bar....works well enough for me.

I mix wax but if similar temps. I'll run a line of cold wax down the edges as it lasts a bit longer and then combine some high flourocarbon and graphite waxes in the middle. Probably more than necessary but oh well I haul ass.

I do something like that. Cold wax on the edges, all-temp in the middle. I don't think it ever gets cold enough here to require all-out cold wax.

No fluorocarbon for me tho, that stuff is pricey!

I also mix waxes regularly, two adjacent temp brackets only. It makes waxing more colourful.

yeah you can just put it on the board in even layers and swirl them together with the iron. But, as others said idk why you would do that its much easier to order an all-temp online, and wait. but if youre in a jam you can do it.

I ran out of all temp wax and I hav to big blocks of cold and warm from race wax. I mostly use the warm as a hot scrape or warm days. But it doesn't last long no matter the conditions. I screwed my self a few weeks ago I had all warm wax on there from the week before (35 deg) it was 1 deg at loon and holy shit I was soooooo slow it was brutal. I'll try the cold on the edges,sounds like a good idea. I'll mix a bit in the middle also. Thanks for the info.
