First time using wax. It went pretty good. Happy with the results.

Final product! I dig the look the wax adds.

Great presentation...even better label!!
My Pumpkin is fermenting as we speak (i know late) and this just makes me want to do something really special for the family members. How were the labels glued? Did you just "roll" the tops in melted wax? What paper did you use

THX!!

Very nice! I've been wanting to do this for a while as well. What type of wax do you use?

I had the labels printed at Kinkos. Laser jet on standard paper. I bought the wax from my LHBS. just dipped and twisted on the way up.

Kinkos is a printing store. I got the label idea from a place called grog labels or something like that. They offer reusable labels shipped to your door. I think they are Sacramento based.
