I walked around the Bath Christmas Market yesterday and there was a couple stalls selling wax seal kits, it got me thinking about the wax seals with prayer sheets you see on the GW human team artwork and space marines.
It would be tricky buisness but has anyone ever tried it? Say taking a tiny piece of paper, aging it with tea stains and then sealing it with wax applied with a pin head? I'm not so sure how well this would work applied onto paint and I'm sure it would be a little fragile even applied onto a bald spot on the plastic or metal but the novelty would be nice.
Much easier with greenstuff but has anyone tried it with real wax?

Those are really cool! Thank you for sharing, Tablet. :)
May buy a set in the not so distant future.

Glad to be of service. I have ordered from the company, really quick delivery and their stuff is good to work with.

I actually bought some their bare heads to use with the new GW human team.

Just use the Games Workshop ones, that's what I've done. If you know any Space marine players, they're bound to have plenty going spare - you get loads on most Marine sprues.
