About this Product

This is for making impressions on sealing wax in the form of a Yin Yang, ancient Chinese symbol of balance and harmony. Because of the symmetry and balance of the positive and negative space, it both looks good on your hand AND makes a good impression on the wax.

Most shapes are hard to get both at the same time - the impression comes out as the "negative mirror image" of whatever you press into the wax, so letters are backwards, and anything raised in the seal is depressed in the wax.

Caution: remove signet rings from your hand before using to make an impression. The ring will get very hot. Please use caution to avoid burns when using fire or hot wax.

In some rare instances, Shapeways stainless steel rings have caused a reaction called "tea staining." This is a (not permanent) brown mark on the skin caused by a chemical reaction with the bronze binder. Research shows that it depends on skin chemistry - some people always get it, most people never do. Some solutions for people concerned with this are coating the skin contact area with clear nail polish, gold plating, or getting the ring made in silver.

Premium sealing wax can be ordered through our main website or Etsy Store.

This symbol is also available as a seal or as cufflinks.
