This evening i have made my own antikwax.
Dark,nice and cheap :)
I know an old furnituremaker wich i have made some old locks for.
it started out with he had a closet were the lock was gone. It was a couple of hundred years old so he could not get it by Ruko,Abloy and so on :D
So i made a couple for him,and during that time he tought me some small tricks and he still is and this is one of theme.
So the other day i was in an very old paintstore in the middel of Copenhagen and there i bought some Pigment-powder made out of “hørfrø” i dont know the english word for it. This had to be mixed with beeswax and then you got the antikwax in any color you want and much cheaper than you can buy it,and the procedure i use to make it is the same the producents of wax is using.
I took some beeswax and melted it in a waterbath.The meltpoint is about 45degres celcius so its fast to do. Then i added the powder in the color i wanted.
Put it away and let it cool down.
Abracadabra i got my antikwax for almost no money :)
