    Came up with a way to go Foundation less ,,, went to a Walmart,, got craft sticks got a small bread pan about 2 inch longer than the craft sticks melted about a 3 /8 incch of wax in the bread pan ,, dipped the edge of 3 sticks in the wax put ithem in on the top of the frame ,,, the girls built comb on them so good and straight anb no burrcomb. The sticks are twice as wide as a popsicle stick
