    Interesting, basically from a very old recipe to waterproof cloth, way before America was invented - the idea was to use mainly Linseed oil with about 5% of say glycerine to make the cloth flexible, if you didn't do that it broke up with time, the oil cloth that is! Could be expensive. I'm not sure if the beeswax would actually ensure that the cloth would have that flexibility in it! Guess it would be nice to get some feedback on this in a couple of years time - now that would really finalise a very useful and fairly easy product that has many uses - but please remember the safety precautions - a bit of spontanious combustion could ruin your whole day!!
