MsDebbieP: Scraped it from the stove into a small cup placed enough water in it to allow it to flow then dabed it on on with my finger, let it dry then applied 2 more times. You could mix it with a little poly and apply it with a soft brissled brush that was going to be my next experiment. It reacts like a fine sand if you have ever worked with wet sand. The grains stack up and stay in place only when the water content decreases, as long as it is in solution you can push it around as the water is absorbed by the wood it stays fixed in place.
