How to make modelling wax
It is both easy and cheap to make modelling wax yourself.
Making modelling wax yourself is a fun and enjoyable project that children will no doubt love. On any dull rainy day, it's the perfect activity. You'll need:
- A pot
- A spoon
- 5 dl. wheat flour
- 3 dl. fine salt
- 2 tbsp. oil
- 2 tablespoons citric acid (available in Matas)
- 5 dl. water
- Fruit color as needed
How to do it
First, mix the flour, salt, citric acid, oil and water in the pan. Heat the mixture and stir thoroughly with a spatula. You can also use a hand mixer with dough hooks. When the modelling clay has thickened, remove the pan from the heat.
Then take the mixture out on the table and knead it thoroughly. It's fun for the kids to join in.
Then divide the dough and add fruit color. Then the model wax is ready to play with!
The model wax can be kept for up to 3 months if stored in the refrigerator in a closed bag. Nothing happens when you taste the modelling wax, but it doesn't taste good 🙂

What is modelling wax good for?
Modelling wax is a great game for children of all ages. Firstly, it appeals to the imagination and creativity. Children can easily make whatever they want with the modelling wax. The many different colours stimulate the sense of sight and teach little ones to distinguish colours from each other.
The model wax can be shaped either with the hands or tools. It strengthens and develops fine motor skills, as well as stimulating the sense of touch when shaping and playing with the fun wax.
- Appeals to the imagination
- Colour recognition
- Strengthens fine motor skills
- Stimulates the sense of touch
Playing with modelling wax is a fun activity, even for young children. Children love it and find it fun to join in.
What is modelling wax made of?

Model wax - how old?
With adult supervision, the model wax is fun to play with from the age of 1, when children have stopped consistently putting everything in their mouths. Of course, it varies a bit when children get interested in modelling wax. So it's a case of trying things out.
The model wax is fun to play with for older children too. It is good for children of kindergarten age, or preschool age.
How to remove modelling wax from clothes?
If modelling wax gets on your clothes, rinse them quickly in lukewarm water. Not too hot, as it can cause the wax to almost "melt" into place. Then rub dishwashing liquid on the stain and leave the clothes in a bag overnight. Then wash on a normal cycle.
