Ingredients and Method:
8 oz. Beeswax, ½ oz. Carnauba wax, 6 fl ozs. Pure Turpentine ( adjust turpentine, more or less, for a firmer or softer polish).
Mix the wax’s together and melt in a double boiler. Also, bring the turpentine to a similar temperature in the same way. Make sure all of the Carnauba wax is melted, as it takes a higher temperature to melt than Beeswax. Once melted, mix both the wax and the turpentine together in a large pan. Allow to cool just slightly and then pour into polish tins. To avoid cracking allow to cool slowly, do not rush.
All ingredients are HIGHLY FLAMMABLE, never allow any contact with naked flames, never leave unattended, always work in a well ventilated room.
