How Does One Use Beeswax in Canele Molds?

I finally got a dozen copper molds. The silicone ones (one black, one red) never gave me the distinctly crisp exterior I want in a canele. (Sorry, I've never learned to do accents on my keyboard.) Now I have to find beeswax and figure out how to use it. Obviously, one must melt the beeswax in order to line the molds, but should the beeswax be melted together with a certain quantity of butter, or should it be used pure? And how do you clean beeswax off the melting pan and the pastry brush? Can it form an intractable mass in my sink disposal?
