After a few questions about my homemade wax and finishing, i share now the recipe wich works very well for me.
200g beewax ( it´s a little less than a half pound)
1 l turpentine ( thats about a little moore than 1 quart)
asphalt paint, pigments ( for dyeing )
First melt all 3 wax sorts in a water bath. Be carefull that it will not get to hot and burn and you will have crumbs
in your finish. Stir everything very well.l Take it from the stove and let it cool down a little bit. Than put in the turpentine and mix untill it starts to get hard. Put it in a container with lid, that the turpentine dont fune out and you can keep it for month. For dyeing you can take parts away, melt it again and put in asphalt or pigments. Be carfull with the asphalt because a few drops can make it very dark.
Rub the wax on the wood surface in grain direction. Use a lint-free cloth. You can also heat it up a little bit with a hot air gun that the wood absorb it a little bit more and rub it again. Normaly i let it stay for about 24h and than polish everything by hand in circular motion, with a lint-free cloth to a nice shine.
It´s now magic you just need some elbow grease.
