You can get wax from fungi perfecti. I am not sure where you can get it locally. Ask a craft store or a food store. Working with cheese wax is mess. I have used candle wax, too, but it is brittle and can break off. It is somewhat less messy than cheese wax. Last year, the logs that I inoculated and waxed did alot better than the ones that I did not. For slower colonizers I think it is a must, for oysters maybe not, but I think your results will be better.

Listen! Do you smell something?

If you're looking for a good wax that's not brittle and cheap and easy to obtain, get beeswax :smile:
Though I'm not sure if that'd be good for what you need.

if you're only talking a few logs, you can find cheese wax in grocerie stores. it's the same wax used in those little soda candies they try to sell with neco wafets and all those other candies that haven't been popular since the fifties.

If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
