I usually make a glaze out of paint thinner and UTC. It works 90% of the time but what can be added to the mixture to give it more body? Star Chemical used to make a product called Nu-Glaze, which was more heavy bodied than the paint thinner/UTC mixture and perhaps they still do. Any ideas what can be added as a thickener? Second question relates to the working time of the glaze. Would adding a small amaount of boiled lindseed oil to the glaze give me the added time? What proportions? Thanks for any help!!!
