    I actually prefer a somewhat irregular circle over one that perfectly round. It brings to mind the historical uses of the wax seal and I find that very charming. Thank you for the very thorough comparisons of the different ways to use wax seals. So helpful!

      I agree with you – most of the time I like imperfections, specially in the world we live in at the moment when everything is seemingly perfect always. However there are times I need it to be close to perfect, and I also know some prefer them to always come out that way. So it’s good to know how to achieve both effects! ????❤️ You are most welcome, I am so happy to hear that you found it helpful – it inspires me to make more posts. ????
