Ok, I went and bought some wax, so I'm going to paint some on.   I'll keep you posted.  Not sure it's going to make much difference until the weather changes a little bit.  We are having a very cool damp spring in Southern Oregon.  Great answers, thanks for all of the input.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I have some old frames that got ate up by the moths a whole back and after I cleaned them up with the pressure washer, I just stuck them in the basement out of the rotation.   I bet they don't have the wax coating left on them anymore since the cleaning.    When I put them back into rotation, I bet I need to rewax the boogers.   What does every body think would be best or easiest, dipping or brushing?  Keep in mind, there were just a handful of sheets to rewax.

A little wax melted in a old pan (that will be dedicated to only wax now) and a real cheep brush (not because I am cheep, they just work well) will go a long way coating those frames.

I second Allen.  Great pic.  More to the point - great experiment!  a beekeeper that actually runs an experiment and finds out.
