All projects should be cleaned and as rust free as possible. Preparation is the most
important step to any project. The better the foundation of your pieces, the greater
the results. Pontypool can be diluted with mineral spirits or turpentine to the
consistency you are comfortable working with. Shelf life can be extended by
placing clean stones or marbles in the can to keep the air space to a minimum.
A natural bristle brush is the recommended for applying. DO NOT STOVE under
any circumstances. Pontypool finish will air dry to touch in 6 to 8 hours and recoat in
24 hours, taking into consideration weather conditions. Full cure in 30 days.
