Big thanks to Scott and Terry who provided me with feedback regarding my emu wax and paste.
I made some more leather food today, but it’s a softer cream this time – very happy with the revised formula, the cream turned out great!
Just the right amount of penetration and waxy residue on the grain surface, very balanced & easy to use.
The proportion of waxes and stearic acid has been decreased, and the oil content upped.
Obviously not suitable for proofing leathers or re-waxing threads any longer – but this formula is more user friendly and geared towards simple, regular maintenance.
I reckon this will be the formula I’ll be using from now on – only making changes to the proportion of beeswax or scent oils.
Tested it out on my wallet – went on to treat lots of my other leathers with it.
Works a charm!
