If I remember correctly, there is a TWS for wood and one for fabric. I
haven't really used it myself as my canvas came already water sealed,
but it's now old enough that I'm going to have to reseal at least around
the seams. I was going to get TWS on the recommendation of others I know
who have used it, and I recall them mentioning that there were the two
kinds. Certainly that which is used on wood would be more like a urethane
sealant and be more prone to cracking. In any case I'll be going to the
local Hechinger's and check it out before Pennsic. I'll probably put up
the yurt there and apply the sealer at that point.
