Guide to Waxing pt. 2

If ur planning on stripping everything from ur base and starting from scratch like i did, and re-do ur base with more expensive and faster wax, then there are 2 methods of doing so:

1-Hot scraping- Usually done with a warm base prep wax and not a cold wax
2-Citric base cleaner (self-explanatory)

for hot scraping, you want to drip the wax on ur base, iron it in and almost immediately u scrape it off. Make sure that the wax is not in its liquid form. Make sure it dries up a little and its still warm and only then u should scrape it off.
What happens is, the warm wax will fuse with the underlayers of wax and it will pull out the old wax with it as its being scraped off. You want to do this while its still warm because this will result in better cleaning of the pores.

For a good foundation, u should apply at least 3 coats of warm base prep wax. Apply the wax, iron, let fully dry, scrape off, buff out with a brush and then repeat procees 2-4 more times.

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
