In Response To: Re: removing grime from painted surface (James Schooley)

I wouldn't suggest adding oil paint to wax to make a dark wax....oil paint takes HOURS to dry, and with the amount of paint you'd have to add to make a comparable dark wax to commercial products, it would definately result in a smeary mess, and may never dry fully...a good wax should dry fully in 15mins. for final buffing...commercial products use dry colorants and dyes that will not be affected by the wax formulas, and don't contain other solvents or vehicles like Alkyd varnish solids, as found in oil paints.
