Good morning All,
I’m back for seconds, thanks for the help with my varnish over shellac question.
I’m very curious about the use of rottenstone as a final finishing medium, having read about it in FWW.
I was recently given a couple of ounces of the stuff, and the agent who gave it to me couldn’t explain anything about it. He just said he’d had it in his store about ten years and I was the first person who asked about it so he gave it to me.
What are the basic ground rules?
What can/should the surface be ? Varnish, shellac, bare wood, etc?
How is it used? in what quantities, etc. I imagine it’s a matter of creating a type of fine paste, and then working this over the surface, for how long, when do you know you’ve achieved the result?
As always, all advice appreciated.
