Topic tags/keywords: hide glue crackle paint

Just checked my full bottle of TBHG and it was gelled solid. up here north of Minneapolis it gets cold and my shop isn’t the warmest. I’m sure that’s one reason it gelled.

So I tried warming the glue in the microwave and it thinned down nice after 5 15 second periods.

Now I’m testing it to see if it’s going to stick and dry.

Original plan was to use it for a crackled paint project. Set up a test piece for that too.

Anyone else had a similar experience or did you just toss the bottle like I was going to do?

Give it a couple of days and check back. The high temp for Mpls on Monday is forecast to be -19F. I know I will not be out in my shop that day.
