Linseed Glazing Instructions:
English | Spanish
Paint Immediately: You may paint with Linseed
Oil Paint right after the Linseed Oil Putty is applied. This
is an amazing time saver. The linseed glazing may be used for filling
cracks as well.
Instructions for Use: Remove putty from the container and
cut/break into four pieces. Heat, two pieces at a time, for ten
seconds – test carefully. You may heat the putty for a further ten
seconds in five-second intervals, if necessary. Knead the putty
until smooth on a cold surface. The microwave will dry the putty
slightly; this can be remedied by adding a teaspoon of our raw
linseed oil when kneading the product.
Cracked front putty can be temporarily sealed by adding a few
drops of turpentine to some fresh putty and applying this with a
brush over the top of the cracks. Dry off with paper after about
fifteen minutes. Can then be painted immediately.
Consistency of Linseed Oil Glazing Putty: It is very easy
to knead the oil into the glazing after you have heated the glazing
in a microwave oven for 10 to 15 seconds. Heat with 5 minutes increments.
Remove the heated glazing from the container onto a cold surface.
Knead the oil into the glazing until it has a doughy consistency.
A soft glazing is required when you are going to apply Linseed Oil
Putty behind the glass (back bed ) in a sash, (setting the glass
into a bed of Linseed Oil Putty). The Linseed Oil Putty also needs
to be relatively soft to better adhere to wood or glass. A dry Linseed
Oil Putty will crack and subsequently fail within a short time.
You can use small amounts of chalk (whiting) to soak up any linseed
oil that might have gotten on the glass after applying all the glazing
needed. You do not usually have to add any chalk (whiting) to the
Linseed Oil Putty itself.
Note: Make sure you apply shellac onto the glazing
grooves before you apply any glazing. The applied shellac in the
glazing grooves will prevent the oil in the glazing from drying
out. This will make the Linseed Oil Putty last for a very long time.
Shellac flakes work
the best. Mix the shellac flakes with just a few drops of denatured
alcohol. The mixture should be of the consistency of syrup. With
thick shellac you will only need one coat. Shellac is an excellent
barrier. Drying time is one hour. Maintain the paint and the Linseed Oil Putty with the Allback Purified Organic Boiled
Linseed Oil or the Linseed Oil Wax.
