this also works well as a saw lube and a tool waterproffer, not to mention one of the best fire starters ive seen
WARNING! These chemicals are Flammable. do this outdoors and do not use open flame.
Step 1: The Materials
a glass jar with a tight fitting cap
a box of canning parrafin
a can of mineral spirits
a metal parts brush
a can larger than the glass jar, and boiling water( i use my tea kettle I have to heat the throwing water)
optional, Food Colour (blue or red woks best)
if you dont like the smell of Mineral Spirits, you can add a drop or two of vanilla or cinimon extract to the mix.
put the glass jar into the larger can (im suing a coffee can)
and cover with mineral spirits.
Step 3: Hadding the Hot Water
let set for a few miniuted
Step 4: Mix in More Wax and Flavours
add the food colouring and scents now if you want them
the final wax will cool to a thick oily opaque material, to use, you just need to warm slightly, and breush on to aresa you dont want glaze on, like feet, or as a decorative acent.
wash you hands with soap and water before you handle any pots, this wax resists is very powerful and very pernicious....
seal tightly and store in your fire cabinet.
a dab of this wax will light quickly and burn hot and makes a excellent kindling starter.....
