If your COCKNEY REBEL is setting too fast, or is stringy, it’s because your room is cold, so simply turn up your wax heater. You should always be guided by the consistency of your wax, and not the dial on your heater.
A full pot should be heated on high for about 25mins (not 15), then turn it down to your working temperature and let it cool.
If you melt it thoroughly to start with, you won’t have any strings and it will be perfect all day.
You should get 10 to 12 Hollywood/Brazilians from one bag. If you’re not, you’re putting too much wax on.
