Wax applied to the sole, during use? Anything will do. I melted down a candle, for example.

Japanning is essentially an asphalt paint used on planes and other tools.

The irons that came with your planes, unless totally used up, will do fine. Save that money for sharpening supplies, as that’s the gateway to hand tool use.
