I just was experimenting with waxing my prints from the Alps printer, and
I consulted a site with information on encaustic. You might want to take
a look at it. http://www.sfo.com/~sinopia/encaustic.html
I ended up dissolving beeswax in turpentine. Worked fine. It must be
horrible, but the smell still brings back strong image of being a young
student in art school.
