MIXOL TOUCH UP KITS

mixol

MIXOL colors are truly “universal” colors in that they use no binder. Made from quality pigments finely dispersed in a glycol ether carrier, they’ll mix with just about anything, including oils, varnishes, shellac, lacquer and water base finishes. For touch up work, we’ve found them first rate when used with shellac and they produce a smoother surface as compared to using dry pigments. Top coat any repaired area with shellac, aerosol lacquers, or water-base finish. The kit colors are also useful for tinting glazes, stains, fillers, glues, and waxes.

 

 

Instructions: Mixol colors must be mixed with some type of finish, otherwise they will not dry. For touch up work, we recommend water-based finishes or shellac, and the aerosol cans made by Zinsser (Bulls-Eye) work very well for dispensing small amounts. To use with other mediums allow to dry before top-coating.

HOMESTEAD GROUND HIDE GLUE

hideglue_web

Our Hide Glue is the traditional glue sold in dry, granular form and is mixed with water to form a gelatin which is then heated to at least 140 degrees F. The gram strength of this glue is 192 which is best for all lutherie and woodworking applications because it has a slightly longer open time than hide glues of a higher gram strength. Mix ratio is 1-3/4 to 1 (water to glue) by weight. However you can alter this ratio slightly to suit your needs.

My favorite way to mix it is to place an amount of dry glue in a small jar. Mark a line twice the amount on the side of the jar and add water to that line. Allow it do swell until it looks like oatmeal or tapioca and then heat. 1 LB. , 8 oz or 4 oz PLASTIC JAR. #2080


Hide Glue Pricing



 


ureaUREA

A dry powder additive for extending the open working time of hide glue (mixed from dry granules). Use 5% to 30% by weight. 4 OZ. PLASTIC JAR.

This product does not degrade the glue as you might read elsewhere. Urea is simply a humectant, meaning it makes the mixed glue retain moisture so it suppresses gelling. Typically 1-2% should be added based upon dry weight of the granules, not the mixed solution. 5% is maximum.  #2035 – $11.95
