    I used 16 oz of wax to 16 oz of linseed oil and it's too much wax. I thoroughly combined it per the instructions. I painted it on hot, straight off the stove top. The wax hardens quickly out of the pot so the oil doesn't even penetrate the fabric. It makes for splotchy complexion which sucks bc I was doing this for look not function. The wax eventually gums up the brush. There's no way to get even coverage unless you do them separately. I'm glad I'm not the only one to have trouble. I added another 8 oz oil and it was a little better. If I redid it, I would do 8 oz or less of wax and 24 oz or more of oil.
