some wax problems

hey guy i just finish waxing my board with some blue bird wax...the wax is purple die and it stained my base i trye scarping it off but it just wouldnt come off i even try to reheat it to a high temp but still nothing....i was wondering if anyone here also had this happen to them and what did they do to fix it ? i would also like to know if this problem will affect my base in its production? would this affect the speed of the board and mess with my ridding ?

Get some non-colored wax and use that to wax with. Evry time you wax do ahot scrap. Eventually the colored wax will be out of your base.

Dude. Its just colored. Why would a color affect your riding?

I mean, you are not too smart to use colored wax on a white base, but hell, you could degrease the entire base maybe.

Else, heat up the wax and use moms nice bath robe or white towel to soak up the wax. *should* come out.

Have fun!

Well first and foremost, that's the desired result. You want the wax to penetrate into the base and then scrape away the excess. As for the stain, go shred a few days. Go out two or three times before you wax again. I bet you after a few days on the hill, a large amount of it will come out naturally. And as Ev said, don't use colored wax on a white base next time.

I wouldn't bother trying to get it out now,if it is already in your base; you might as well go take advantage of it?
