      Gunderson, I think you're thinking of a Toaster Oven. The term "Microwave" refers to the small wavelengths used for dielectric heating. Just a few seconds is enough to cause damage or start a fire and shouldn't be done.

      Moe, instead of using it like scar wax, try just kind of molding it on your face like you would a prosthetic gel.

      I would just like to point out that the recipe says Microwave Oven, not Microwave.

      Microwave ovens are ultimately little ovens that you can set the temperature on. They can cook anything without the harmful effects of a microwave. They're usually good when cooking for one. Many people use it as a safe alternative to the microwave. Of course it is unsafe to put metal in a microwave but in the case of a microwave oven you are in the clear! :) hopefully i cleared up some confusion.

      Do your research, people. CERTAIN metals damage microwaves, certain metals don't. 20 seconds is not going to cause an explosion.

      Hey guys:) I would suggest not using a metal cup and just using a mug and a cheaper option then hair wax (also it may be hard to find) use petroleum jelly and add in a bit of flour then put it in the microwave and enjoy:)

      I know this works from experience, hope it works for you:)

      Metal can't go in the microwave as it can make it explode.

      Wouldn't microwaving a metal cup/soft drink can be bad? It sparks in the microwave and could start a fire, and the toxins from aluminum are lethal so can we just use a metal mixing bowl that can take the heat? Other than that this sounds like a good idea I might try it out for my homemade zombie costume.
