Here’s an easy wax recipe to prepare that offer good water resistance, a lot of flexibility and superior sheen.

It can be applied directly on wood or on oil, shellac or varnish finish.

Ingredients :

Carnauba Wax : 25 g

Candelilla Wax : 25 g

Bleached Beeswax : 100 g (can also be replaced with 100 g of Microcrystalline Wax)

Double Boiled Linseed Oil : 25 ml

Odorless Thinner : 700 ml

Citrus Solvent : 75 ml

In a metallic container, warm the thinner and the solvent in a Bain-Marie. Add the three waxes and let melt. Add the Linseed Oil and mix well. The use of more or less of thinner will soften the wax and facilitate the application. Once all the ingredients are entirely dissolved, pour into a container and cool down. Using the Odorless Thinner and the Citrus Solvent will create an almost odorless wax, leaving you with a slight citrus odor.

Apply using a polishing cotton in very thin layer. Let dry for 12 to 24 hours and polish up using a polishing brush. This wax is more resistant to water and less fragile than the commercial waxes. For maintenance, apply a thin coat of wax and let dry for 12 to 24 hours. Then polish using a brush or a wool rag.
