I got 20 medium frames of this fully formed foundation i think was called permacomb for Christmas. I'm new and have a shortage of drawn comb to expand this spring. Had anybody used this stuff? Other than waxing, are there any other prep i should perform to help acceptance?

I've got about a thousand of them. I heated them to 200 F and dipped them in beeswax and shook off the excess, but it was a very messy process. They were 100 percent accepted as drawn comb once they were dipped. If you don't dip them, they are less accepted at first but they are eventually.
