Grafting Wax

How shall I make grafting wax for grafting fruit trees?

There are many "favorite prescriptions" for grafting wax. One which is

now being largely used in fruit tree grafting is as follows: Resin, 5

lbs.; beeswax, 1 lb.; linseed oil, 1 pint; flour, 1 pint. The flour is

added slowly and stirred in after the other ingredients have been boiled

together and the liquid becomes somewhat cooler. Some substitute

lampblack for flour. This wax is warmed and applied as a liquid.
