HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN WAXED-CANVAS SHIRT
1. Lay shirt flat and unbutton all buttons.
2. Wax around all seams first. Spread the wax on evenly, press firmly. More wax means less coats. We like to use Greenland Wax.
3. Iron with the steam off on level 1 or 2. It must be a dry iron setting. Slowly iron over all waxed surfaces.
4. Repeat wax coats until your achieve your desired look. More wax means more character, texture and waterproof. (We usually go with four coats for a perfect finish.)

I’ve seen a good video from Barbour about this.

I’m doing a post-apocalyptic survivor costume for Halloween, and was inspired by the beautiful and functional snow goggles used by the Inuit to cut down snow glare. Not having any caribou bone to carve them from, I used basswood.

I do not know how many hours it took, but it was excellent practice and I’m pretty satisfied with how it turned out. The strap is a piece of leather from a bag of remnants, attached with Velcro. It’s a little flimsy so I may have to figure out a different way to attach the strap, but it’ll do for now!
