The RAL 041 quality mark guarantees high health and environmental compatibility.
How do I use my wax board?
With the pointed side of the stylus, using light pressure in "downward motions", scratch the letters into the wax.
The flat side of the stylus can be used to erase what has been written. To do this, take the stylus as shown and place your index finger on the flattened part of the stylus.
In this way, you can smooth out the wax again with gentle pressure in a "pulling" motion.
The term "tabula rasa" comes from Roman times and the use of the wax tablet. It means "smoothly scraped slate" and is used as a figure of speech for "clearing the air".
How do I insert the tablets?
For educational purposes:They can be used as an educational tool in schools or educational programmes to teach children and adults the history of writing and communication.
Reenactment and historical representation:For events depicting the Roman Empire or similar historical periods, wax tablets can be used to enhance authenticity and historical accuracy.
They can be used as props or used by the performers.
Gift for history enthusiasts:For people who have a strong interest in history and ancient cultures, a wax tablet could be a fascinating gift to place on their desk or use as part of a historical prop collection.
