How To: Waxing Ration & Bandage Boxes

Waxing boxes for rations and bandages is not particularly difficult, but it is something that few people attempt and more would if they had some sort of a guide.

What You’ll Need:

  • Boxes that you want to wax (in this article I will be waxing D-Ration boxes from
  • Paintbrush (I use a 1.5″ wide brush and that works well for me)
  • Small metal mixing bowl (you will probably be better off designating this bowl to be used for waxing for the rest of its life so you don’t have to worry about cleaning it out each time)
  • Paraffin¬†wax (Gulf Wax is readily available in most grocery stores and works well)
  • Knife
  • Wax paper
  • Paper towels
