Can't help much in the wax resist dept as I don't use it, but for the incising you were trying, you might try brushing on shellac instead of wax and then try carving through that.

Wax on wet/leather hard clay will peel off as you describe.
To remove wax, fire the piece up to 500 degrees or a bit hotter to burn off the wax. Or just go ahead an bisque fire it.
