Anyone know where I could find a source for waxed canvas fabric? I'm not looking for the oilcloth, like they sell in joann's (pvc treated) but the authentic cotton canvas fabric treated with wax/oil. Having a really hard time finding any! thanks in advance for your help. Smiley

For waxed canvas just make a batch of greenland wax (9 parts canning paraffin to 1 part beeswax by weight), rub it into the canvas after you have sewn up you project and melt it in with a hair dryer.
