Works good enough

This wax works well for holding jewelry and other small items while shooting. It is not quite as "white" as some, but that has not created any issues.

I use this for jewelry photography...to hold the pieces in place. It is somewhat more yellow than competitors'. Since the goal is to have it not be visible anyway I suppose this is okay, but with other waxes in the marketplace that are clear/white why use yellow?

      Excellent for keeping small subjects in place while shooting macro. Keeps things steady, yet comes off cleanly.

          Several people have commented about the packaging. I guess the company has listened; the sticky was is in a nice plastic bag that can be resealed easily. Works well for me and would recommend the product.

          "Not the Real Deal"

            Not colorless like they advertise. Very poorly packaged. It arrived in a small jewelry cardboard box with cotton that stuck to the wax. Very thin wax, but very tacky. Works well for small items, but not a strong hold like the Authentic Jewelry Holding Wax on other sites. I guess it pays to shop around and pay the higher price sometimes. I learned my lesson this time around, "I got what I paid for!"

                    A little sticky, yes..but not strong enough for day to day uses. I was able to hold a few photos in place, do minor product photography, but the quality vs price comparable to the authentic Holding Wax I used in the past was not worth my time or energy to play with. The packaging was horrific, very elementary and not professional. I would not recommend this product. Do your research and look for the little bars of wax wrapped in yellow paper.

                    Both times I ordered this, it came in a box with cotton that stuck to the wax and was very difficult to remove. It was very yellow and old looking, making it hard to remove the color from the photo. Although it was tacky, and did the job for holding my miniatures down. I wont order again. Its not nearly as durable or strong like the authentic jewelry holding wax. I will surely stick to the original!

                    Works fine and can hold jewelry and small products in place but the color makes it a bit more difficult to Photoshop out.

                          This product was disappointing, packaged in cotton batting so it stuck to the wax and the wax was yellow. Looks like it was sitting around for a while. Very small for the price.

                            We use this product to pose jewelry for photographs and to set up jewelry displays. It works great! You only need a little (a very, very small piece) to hold a ring in great positions. I'm sure this product has many uses that we will discover the more we use it.

                                Much more yellow than white/clear therefore visable in pictures. Sticky hold is pretty good but doesnt hold up as well as the Jewelry Holding wax I've purchased from another site.
