tincloth? Answered

if the oil/wax mixture was applied as, waterproofing for a permanent exterior canvas surface (large tent), would the summer heat, up to 40+ degrees destroy the finish and need to be re-applied every winter? also any other ideas would be greatly appreciated, I thought oil based paint would become brittle, and im not sure if I can thin silicone to apply with a roller, someone mentioned shellac but I read that it is no good outside, and as I have quite a large area and many tents to do, any ideas thanks.

Duct tape. It might ruin your tent, but it is a good water proofing tool.

Paint, wax and oil, or scotch guard, you must reapply or the canvas leeks, other than that, this is all you can do.
