Waterproofing Bed Sheets, Etc.
« on: November 06, 2022, 09:00:18 PM »
This link was in the latest Small Craft Advisor; unfortunatley the last actual paper edition of the magazine as costs have gotten so high that they are going the way of so many others and publishing on line.

Anyway, this uses silicone rather than beeswax but it looks good.  When i opened the link it started at about the 80% point of the video and I had to pull the button back to the beginning, but then I got to see the whole show.  Enjoy!

Very interesting! Probably will never do it, but it's one of those "good to know / might try it someday just for the heck of it" pieces of info.
