I got it from the link I posted above. I had to convert the proportions to english.

4oz beeswax

2oz mineral spirits

6oz turpentine

I melt the wax in a washed out soup can. I hold the can with pliers in a pot of boiling water. when it’s melted pour it into a larger container holding the mineral spirits and turpentine. Stir it up a little to mix it up, then let it cool. It will be about the consistency of peanut butter.

I apply it with 0000 steel wool, buff with a clean cotton rag.

Make sure you use good turpentine. The stuff in the big box stores sucks. Full of impurities, but it here.
