The recipe for our Renaissance wax is four parts Microcrystalline to one part Polythene A wax.

The A wax has a higher melting point (+/-100C) so that should be melted first and then the
microcrystalline (MP86C) added to it bit by bit. I melt it in an old pressure cooker on top of a
Rayburn hot plate. When all melted and mixed it is poured into white spirit (taking precautions
against fire risk, I do this outdoors) stirring vigorously until mixed to a smooth paste. I decant it into
screw top glass jars.

I use between 10 to 15 litres of white spirit per 1kg batch of combined wax. 2 or 3 gallons per 2lb
