The artisan who makes these is a dedicated practitioner who handcrafts each one. He had developed a wax blend, which is a carefully measured mixture of three types of wax which he combines in proportions to match as closely as possible the hardness and colour of the original sigillum. e original is on permaenent display at the British Museum (around the corner from Treadwell's). The larger sized sigillum is very nearly the same as the original. The smaller ones are approximately half size.
