John, I imagine that I did, but writing some 50 emails a minute, I don't
always have them indexed in mind. I've certainly written about it at
length in past, MUST be in the archive, but briefly, the only wax I use is
a bar of paraffin, heat the paper with electric iron & rub in. Keep
heating & rubbing til all clear. It's a piece of cake for ink jet, but has
to be handled carefully with laser or copy machine toner which can offset.
Have never used it on photo paper, but I imagine fiber paper would be
similar -- tho not sure it would work at all with RC.
Some special laser papers also have a coating & wouldn't accept the
paraffin. There are so many out there it's impossible to generalize, but
for $2 for a pound of wax at the supermarket (sold for jelly making, but
lay in a stock when you find it, maybe jellymaking goes out of style,
easiest to get in summer when people make jelly), easy to try.
Again, I've written this x times... there have to be more details in
