You can place wax on copper in Minecraft to prevent it from oxidizing. The 1.17 Caves & Cliffs update introduced oxidization. This new feature will cause copper blocks to slowly turn green, unless it is prevented. This is where wax comes in.
A copper block can be kept at its initial stage by applying wax to it. However, oxidized blocks may look cooler and give the building an aged appearance. Although lightning strikes can also remove oxidization from copper blocks, wax is the most popular solution. It's not permanent once it's been added. You can remove it later.
Players will need an axe to remove wax from copper block. To remove wax from copper blocks, simply click an axe on them all. This will allow players to complete the Wax On, Wax Off achievement.
Players must add wax to the blocks in order to remove it from them. They will need to find wax to do this, which can prove difficult. It is rare for players to find a beehive.
Players will then need to set up a campfire under the hive to keep the bees safe. They can then use the shears to extract wax. However, if they don't have one, they will need to find one.
There are a few differences in the spawn rates of different biomes. However, plains and sunflower plains (just 5.5%) have the highest rates. Other Minecraft biomes only have a.2% rate of spawn, which is almost impossible.
Then they can take the wax and place it on a block of copper. If necessary, they can remove the wax from the block using the axe.
