Thinning my Future Gloss

Recommended Posts

I've been using Future Floor wax with my airbrush for years and although usually satisfied, it left me wondering if it could be improved. Now I've played with a homebrew formula that I have had good results with.

For the homebrew I'm using 2/3 bottled water and 1/3 Isopropyl Alcohol with a few drops of Flow-aid. For a few years I kept tropical and marine fish and did a lot of reading of the makeup of water. I'm of the opinion using distilled water is not necessary as most bottled water would have mineral counts very low. By the way the other 9% of the bottles Isopropyl Alcohol is water.

 

My ratio for mixing homebrew to Future is about 1:1 and for me the Future seems to cure much faster and very hard within two hours you can handle the model without leaving fingerprints. I amy quite happy with the results.
