Waxed my anorak with 50/50 bees/paraffin. I initially coated it with a very heavy and uneven layer of wax and melted with a hair dryer on high setting. Then I put the jacket inside a pillow case. Tied it off. And then put that in another pillow case. Tied that off and put it in the dryer on high heat. Tossed in a pair of shoes to beat the jacket. This evened out the layer of wax. The excess wax ended up on the inner pillow case. The end result looks really nice except for a few light patches. But the jacket is extremely stiff and difficult to put on. Here are some images pre wax, post wax, and post dryer.
