a few POUNDS of wax to wax frames?
   Why so much?
  One cupcake pan sized piece of wax will do 200 ish frames if you rub it on the starter strip edge..    That is what I typically do.... if your melting the wax and painting it on you are wasting wax.  I would use NO wax on my starter strips before I did that..
   Let me know how many frames you need to wax I can send you a little wax, but dont have any "pounds" of it I can spare.

I melt it and roll a thin coat on the recycled plastic foundation.
