Ammonia will re-melt the cera colla, it acts like an erasure while painting.
In a painting the wax is clear.
The wax and ammonia were both less than boiling hot when mixed.
Once the heat has changed the color you can't change it back.

Don, here is one of my sample boards. The look of the plain beeswax is what I want, but I really like the work ability of the cera colla. And what should I do if I wanted to reduce the  white in the cera? Any suggestions?
On another note thank you for such a great compliment and as always, thank you for taking to time to discuss this.
