Waxing the boots

I'm giving parrafin wax a go on my Stylmartin boots. I want them to become waterproof. Initially, I have cleaned and sprayed the boots with a silicon based coating which impregnates the materials and will sit under the wax. 


I warmed with a hair dryer and rubbed tea-light candle wax all over the boots. Further warming melts the wax and soaks into the stitching.
