April 2014: Adventures in waxing

It was a beautiful, sunny day in the 'Sham when Theo decided to try waxing some of our printed linen. His home made concoction of bees wax, linseed oil and turpentine smelled wonderful. It was a bit tricky to apply...you have to work fast and get it on evenly but it worked! The waxed items hung around airing and drying for a few weeks and are now in daily use.
