I have been asked as of late how I wax my marbled papers for finishing 17th c caskets. Theres nothing to it. All you need is a hard beeswax cake and some paper. I use an old hanky or muslin cloth to buff after applying the beeswax to get off any little crumbly bits that may have fallen off the cake. I do prefer a hard wax cake of 100% unprocessed beeswax as then you dont have to burninsh afterwards for the nice shine. Soft wax and some thread waxers may have conditioners added or scents ect...you dont want that, just 100% beeswax.
