Ways to remove wax resist.
1. Microwave it
2. Heat in a regular oven for 15 minutes to about 350 should be enough.
3. wipe with paint thinner
4. wipe with nail polish remover
5. sand off with sand paper
6. use one of the goop off products that takes off gummy stuff
7. I have never tried vandel remover but it probably will work.

I like the microwave. Usually any art office has one of the little ones.
Put some water in the container if possible. Zap it.

At the high school level I use the "Goop off" stuff. "Dissolve it" is
another brand.
