... where to buy wax => I think hardware store should carry paraffin wax. I know surf shops here carries wax. Candle wax should work. Beeswax may work but its consistency is greasy[?].

I think you could do a double boiler type thing since wax melt at a fairly low temperature. Get a sauce pan with water, and place a Pyrex measure cup in the middle with chunks of wax. Bring the water before its about to boil. The wax will melt before then.

Hope others chime in with their suggestions now that I got the ball rolling.
