How do I rewax tin cloth?Updated 2 years ago

For best results, re-proof in warm conditions. Ensure the garment is clean before proceeding (see “how do I clean tin cloth?” above for full instructions).

Apply wax generously with a clean cloth. Use light, short, circular strokes to work wax well into the affected areas-–usually seams, creases, and high flex areas.

Use a hairdryer or heat gun to blow dry evenly over application for a real “factory” finish. Hang garment overnight in a warm place, away from open flame.

Note that the wax cools and hardens quickly, sometimes leaving a visible smear of cooled wax on the surface. Blow-drying the fabric after application melts any excess wax into the fabric, eliminating the tacky surface.
