Signing the wax/ numbering

I am planning to start a project and I would like to limit the number of editions to 500.
What tool do you typically use to sign your wax?
Do you also insert a date or just the 1/500?

Your suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Re: Signing the wax/ numbering

I tend to sign date and number mine. I use a pointed wax carving tool that just looks like a large blunt round needle. Which tool you would use would depend on the size of the piece. But for me a something shaped like a blunt needle works best. Warming it also helps it plough through the wax.

Thanks Mandrid,

The tool I tried may have been to sharp. It always leaves an edge that is difficult to get rid of afterwards without spoiling the signature.
