Waterproofing matches

There are several manufacturers of waterproof matches but these tend to be pricey you can make your own one of three ways from regular strike anywhere matches.
The first way is with candle wax just heat the wax in a pan or wax warmer and dip the head of the match. This is the fastest way and will be fine unless you plan on long term storage as the wax will eventually deteriorate the match head.
The other two ways are clear nail polish or varnish same deal as the wax dip and let dry this way takes a little longer to dry but wont deteriorate the match head.
