There are dozens of recipes for that and very few of them give decent results. Wrapping is generally used to keep the vapour trapped and prevent drying. Yet if the wrapping touches the treated surface you'll mostly get patchy results. If you let the mixture dry, you'll get patchy results too. If you keep reapplying you'll get somewhat less patchy results. If you use the xantan gum mixture, the least patchy result might be achieved with regular (preferably distilled) water fog-spraying over the treated surface. Yet google may give you dozens more approaches ;-)
