I didn't see where this was posted but I'm pretty sure it's here somewhere.
I want to wax a bag and was wondering if I can use beeswax...and how do I do it. dip it? sponge it on?
Now, I know there are other things than beeswax to use but case in point is that I have beeswax and not the other.
Can anyone shed any light on this for me? Thanks

yes if you don't live in big bear country, first melt it into a container over a hotplate, apply with a 1 inch paintbrush and use a blowdryer to melt it into the fabric. wipe off eccess as you go with an old towel. if you do live in big bear country i'd suggest parrafin wax.

I used beeswax, what I did was I got some melty, swabbed it on (holding onto the chunk of wax), and followed it with a hairdrier.

Works well enough for me:)
