Medieval Letter Sealer

I just finished a project I began as a side project to a bigger one. I was making a present to a friend, and part of the present involved a letter that I wanted to look old. I made it with thin typing paper that we'd got from our Great Grandparents, and printed it using a custom font I'd made, but it was still missing something.

Anyways, I decided to make a wax seal for it. I ended up going to the local thrift store, buying 2 red candles and a green candle, plus some rubber stamps, for just under 2$. The candles supplied the wax, and the rubber stamps were the seals. However, after I'd made the letter and sealed it, I decided to make a custom stamp for fun.

First Post

I don't play video games, well, not all the time. I do play Minecraft, on a server I own for me and my friends. On other days, I do lots of things. I construct and program arduino projects, research obsolete tech on the web, fix computers, phones, tablets, and general electronics, take things apart, read books, and make things I think are cool. I love thinking about making robots, and wish I had the capital to actually build a decent one. I'm in an FTC robotics team. I like almost anything that's old, especially if it's some sort of technology. My ideal first car would be a VW Bug (The old ones, not the new 'beetles'). I've got an instr…
