Dried up glazing compound
[Return to Topics]

I read somewhere that you can bring old glazing compound back to life by adding linseed oil- I have a can of DAP that looks like it was purchased within the last two years (father-in-law passed away and in cleaning out his barn found this along with various paints and thinners.) Anyone know about this? I can't find the source of this info and need to know if I can save the stuff or have to buy new. Your help is appreciated.

Check the contents on the label.I know the old.15-20 yrs ago putties could be thinned/resurrected by linseed oil if not too far gone,however a lot of the newer compounds are latex or water based.I have not had occaision to do any glazing for quite awhile,but if I recall right,compound is fairly cheap,you may be just as well off to buy a new can as/if you need it.
