Sprue wax not sticking to castable resin when making tree

Attempting to cast my first print. Using Ruby Red wax for attaching ring to the sprue to make a tree, but the wax does not seem to want to stick very securely to the printed ring. Used the formlabs castable resin. Anyone have any suggestions? Thank you

Put a spot of sticky wax on the model first then attach your sprue to that.

Sorry… but what is “sticky wax”?

Was really hoping your google wasn’t broken.

I know how to google! This is how I learned!
