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

I just preformed a test on the oil base tint in paste wax method for tinting wax. First colorless wax takes very little paint to take on color. Also the remains after drying and buffing is a concentrated film of the fluffier original mix and therefore the color goes a long way. The amount of paint needed to tint wax is very small, as I have previously suggested only drops should be added. Next, the mix dried quite nicely and in less than fifteen minutes, a batch of less than 5% oil base paint, and buffed out as should be expected. Removal worked fine with mineral spirits, and if one simply can't stand the idea of paint in wax, try crayons, they are wax base, just not often found in most work shops. Good luck, and happy restoring, James.
