I have used Renaisance Wax on my handmade papers from Light Impressions in
N.Y. as well as other suppliers. It will not leave a waxy feel and it is
supposed to be archivally sound. The odor is pervasive and you need to air
the coated paper well before inclosing it in something like a book.
Another sealer you might consider is an acrylic medium (matte is really nice)
diluted for a light surface coat. I use the one from Daniel Smith Art
Supplies in Seattle. If you need addresses let me know.
