3. Dip the duck in the liquid wax several times until it is completely covered. Let the bird cool until the wax becomes solid.
4. Peel the hardened wax from the top down. It should come off in several large pieces, with the down feathers trapped inside (there might be a few strays you'll have to pluck by hand). Once plucking is complete, cut off the legs and head and toss the bird in the pot.
