DIY Domke Waxwear
Ok I live in Oregon, It rains a lot and I aways carry my bag with me, I have used waterproofing spray on my domke bags, but that wasnt water-resistant enough for me.
I wanted waterproof, and ugly. I’m one of those people who think camera bags must be ugly! So I decided to wax the canvas. Did some online reasearch and found instructions on how to make tin cloth.
All you need is
beeswax ( I couldn’t find beeswax so I used paraffin)
Heres how to do it
2-mix equal parts wax with turpentine
3-paint mixture onto canvas
4-Let it dry
5-Use a blow dryer to melt the excess wax into the canvas
6-leave bag out to air out (turpentine stinks)
7-all done, Bag is ugly and stiff, Just what I wanted!
