spar varnish won't work because it requires air to dry - the internal
will remain wet forever, and outgassing of the solvent will cause
Suggest using a 2 part epoxy resin if you want to do this - some resins
relatively soft and compliant.  Otherwise, if you want a dry capacitor,
wrong with parafin wax - once it cools you can move it around no problem
follow your procedure, except use parafin instead of spar varnish (and
careful not to burn yourself), and keep the assembly warm until done,
then let 
it cool overnight.  Tar and silicone grease would also work, I would
don't know about regular old axle grease due to it's soap content.
