Take the 2 metal containers.We draw attention to the fact that one was smaller than the other for the water bath.The capacity of a larger pour water.Take a small saucepan, if it does not, its role is ideal for tin can from under lemonade or beer.To construct a water bath and set on fire.
The smaller container to put the mixture of birch bark processing.If the bark will serve dishes - cut knife beeswax and linseed oil 3 \ 1.If, however, it will bark decor element, the beeswax with the addition of rosin 4 \ 2.Navigate to the need, which will then be used the product made of birch bark.For the treatment of kitchen utensils, the use of rosin and turpentine, of course, unacceptable.Wait until the wax melts and lightly stirring, bring our mix to a liquid state, the consistency of t

And our mix brought to the desired consistency, elm prepared - Remove from the heat and proceed directly to the treatment.Brush gently drip the mixture on the bark.Take a small piece of cloth, it should not leave any lint, it is better to use a felt, and spread the prepared mixture so as to properly process the bark.To do this, carefully rubbing the mixture into each square centimeter of bark, strictly on the direction of the fibers otherwise we risk getting ugly divorces.
