I've had a small can of black Gilder's paste for over a year and only used it once but I don't think it was in the usual way it is used. I added a small amount to my usual beeswax, boiled linseed and mineral spirits mix to give it a slight darker finish. The mix gave a dark see through finish that was actually pretty cool. Anyways, I know this is not the way it is meant to be used and would like to know how some of you that have had success with this product are going at it. Do you mix the paste with thinner ? other mixes ? How thick do you make your mix ? It is quite dry in the can and seems it would be hard to get it to spread nicely especially in hard to reach areas. Applied cold ? What do you use to apply it, rags ? Same preperation of the metal as for the wax/oil finishes ? Wire wheel ? Sand paper ? Let dry and buff ? As you can see, any basic info will be appreciated... Thanks in advance Naz
