I would probably skip the "baking paper", which I assume is wax paper, as I wouldn't want to get wax in the rosin.  I would probably put it directly on the metal cooking sheet.  I would expect to clean the sheet with alcohol when finished.

I'll remember this in case I ever break some expensive rosin cake.

"Baking Paper", AKA "Baking Parchment" is paper that has been impregnated with a silicon compound to make a non-stick surface that is more or less disposable.  (It can be washed and re-used, but I don't know anyone who actually does.)  It wouldn't put wax in the rosin and it would save that alcohol cleanup of the metal pan.

Great stuff, since you can use it instead of greasing things like cookie sheets for baking.  For DIY non-food applications it is also handy, since glue and etc will set up on it, but won't really stick to it.

The method shown is pretty cool, but you could also just fold a little open top box from a small piece of the baker's parchment and not have to mold it after it melts.

It's a great concept just for reshaping your rosin or maybe blending/melting two of the same rosin's together. Hard rosin on one side and soft/dark rosing on the other. They would be easier to keep track off rather than having two seperate piece's.

Good thing to know, thank's Keith.

Another thing I learned from you, Daniel.

Thanks, Keith. Best part was listening to the piano jazz. The site listed, historicalrosin.com didn't come up, though.

@Fiddlestix, that is really a great idea! but i dunno if they would stick...but since they are sticky when melted, that should be a great one!

@steve, ya, too bad i can't open it as well, i also saw a video of the same user showing how to clean a bow, maybe he also have more vids on his youtube.

cheers!
