Good day. I have applied the wax and wanted to share my experience. I used chippewa 20080(to train my skills) with obenauf's oil and lp.
First of all I applied oil in 1 layer. In welt area I used it liberally. The leather became much softer and colour darkened what was expected.
Then after about 48 hours I was working with wax. Wow, LP has such a wonderful flavor and I spent nice time doing it. The lp was sucked in leather even before heating part.
But hair dryer was melting wax very slowly so I decided put boots in oven at around 60 *C for 20 minutes. When I took the boots out of the oven they were dry and I noticed residual wax. I think it's kind of residue and it was mainly noticeable in welt area. Although the boots are not shiny as yours but I think it's because of different types of leather.
The main thing which concerns me is why lp melts so badly. Maybe it because it was already penetrated in leather?
Update: I have finished with another boots and supplies - filson oil and Dr Martens Wonder Balsam. It seems balsam melts much easier but still remains in welt area unmelted in little amount. I removed slightly excessive wax with cloth and distributed at boot's area.
P.S. Sorry fellows, I know my English looks weird and post is unrelated.
