Question About 'Rosin'
Okay, there's been a short discussion about 'Cobbler's Wax' and making it. From that information and other information available, it appears that 'rosin' the kind that string musicians use on their bows, is one of the ingredients in the wax. So here's my question to any of you who've actually made or attempted to make the wax: The rosin I have (violin rosin) is a dark amber color and in a little block. It is rock solid. So how do you get it to melt in with the other ingredients? Do you break off little chunks, pulverize some with a hammer, or what? Then, how do you get it soft? When I tried to do that I melted a few chunks in a pot over a low flame but the melted rosin was still hard as a rock. Looking for suggestions. Thanks
