I have tried paraffin wax for glass plate capacitors and found that
when the wax cooled and shrank it always left voids which caused 
arcing. Then led me to use oil instead, despite its being messier.
So I'd guess you might have analogous problems with the transformers.
However, some more experienced coilers report using neons with no
repotting at all, just bare. They work just as well and cool better.
