Surfaces should be clean, dry, and free of frost. When re-glazing, remove all old putty and bedding. If any separation has occurred in glazing, mix entire contents of container until uniform. If the compound is too stiff, the addition of a minimum amount of VM and P Naphtha Spirits (not to exceed 1-1/2 fl. oz., 44 ml for each 1 gl., 3.78 l) of compound will reduce the consistency. Do not add any type of oil or pigment to the compound. Preferably store compound in a warm place prior to use. Press glazing onto sash filling height and width of L-shaped recess completely. Smooth glazing with a putty knife to an angle that sheets water. Typical dry time before painting is two to three weeks, depending on temperature and humidity. Putty may be painted after it has skinned over and attained a firm set. For best results, use a high quality oil-based paint.
