Someone asked me to assemble some hives that have been wax dipped. He would also like them painted. I told him I wont attempt to paint them. I heard you can paint wax dipped hives if you paint them while it’s still hot. If so, do you use water or oil base paint. @Semaphore, you might know the answer.
If the bloke really insists on painting, I’m thinking of applying heat to the boxes before painting.
