[Histonet] IF staining: can I mount pwax sections in DPX?

I usually carry out single/double IF-staining on pwax sections and coverslip 
sections in an aq. anti-fade mountant.
This works well.
However, can these sections be mounted in a solvent-based mountant  and not 
only retain IF but also be able to retard fading? ( eg: DPX, after 
dehydrating in alcohol, clearing and mounting in xylene)
