My brother once made some wax signs for his store they were cheaper than laminated paper and lasted for months in the snow and rain. For a tarp I think you would need a very oily wax (more malleable and less prone to cracking and crumbling off). Something like toilet seal wax I think would be best. I once made a lip balm out of pig lard and wax that├Ęs what you need fat and wax mixed. I doubt you can make it for less than the plastic stuff though.
 
What does a metric clock look like? I bet it is nothing like this tiny ad:
Would you replace your oven with a rocket oven?
