I recently picked up a couple of Brown Mallee burrs (burls?) with the knobbly rounded back (which was under the bark). The harvester obviously sealed the whole thing by dipping it in wax. I want to retain the knobbly back but I want to get rid of the wax. Internet searches have thrown up suggestions like using a heat gun and kitchen roll; a pressure washer; naptha or other solvents; or a wire brush and then detergent.

Has anyone had any success that they can share with me, please?

Cheers

Steve
