    What did you find to be the best re:container? Soup can, or something else? I just bought a bunch of wax, and plan on doing this to some bottles soon as well.

    I used a pretty big chili can for these

    The main tip is don't dip when the wax is scorching hot or there are beads that have not melted. It got to be really fun although I probably should have been drinking but it was early in the morning. I did at least 40 bottles with one bag of Home Brew beads.
