... I m assuming using two pans to make up a double boiler would be fine.? Lastly, if stored, would I need to melt it down before each use? In-other-words will it solidify? – Ynot
I use discarded soup/tomato cans as my melting vat. No clean up required?

Once the wax has been dissolved into the oil, it will stay in thick sludge like suspension forever. How thick depends on temperature and amount of wax used. Only if the mix is reheated above melting point of wax and sits for long time will you see it separate.

PS – Use only Beeswax in home made finishes. Candle (paraffin) wax melts at too low temperature.
