At the [[consecration of a church]], wax-mastic is being used to seal in the relics into the Holy Table. Also the table top of the Holy Table is secured with wax-mastic and nails. Small reliquaries with relics are also have often the fragments of relics encased in wax/mastic to secure them.
The process to create wax/mastic is generally described in the order of the Great Consecration of the Church. However it seems that the ingredient list is also depending on local traditions.
