I've always been a fan of sealing notes and letters with wax. Like everyone else, I've gotten away from it, simply because I do more e-mail than actual writing. Still, I love adding a wax seal to a note.
This compass rose has been my seal for years now. I like it. With writing the dragon story this spring/summer, that imagery has been on my mind. I saw a dragon seal on Etsy, and thought it'd be a good addition.
Here's the dragon, after a couple of practice attempts with dark green wax. What was neat was that they sent a stamp pad with gold-metallic ink along with a couple of sticks of sealing wax. The idea is, you stamp the seal on the ink pad. The ink covers the flat surface of the seal, but not the depressed portions. When you press the seal into the wax, the ink goes down, around what becomes the raised impression:
I went a bit too heavy on the ink on this test impression. I'll work on that, while I order some more red sealing wax!
