Wax decorations are known to predate blown glass Christmas ornaments. Handcrafted and produced exclusively in the Bavarian region of Germany by a member of the arts and craft industry. The Gingerbread Bakers started the craft by pouring wax into wooden moulds used to form gingerbread cakes. Wax ornaments are known to be a traditional fixture on the German Christmas tree. A hardening agent is added to German wax enabling it to withstand temperatures up to 120 degrees. The wax is hand-poured, trimmed and hand painted using a dipped and wiped method. This ensures that your ornament can be treasured for many years to come.
