Re: How much Penetrol?

Jim, if Penetrol is anything like Easy Flow from Epifanes (and I think it is; a fairly thin, almost watery, oil) about 5 to 10% should be fine, depending on conditions. I have recently started using Easy Flow with Epifanes high gloss varnish and find that it makes the varnish much easier to work with and the final result much more homogeneous. I doubt that adding 5-10% of Penetrol or Easy Flow will alter the characteristics of the varnish layer significantly. -- Niels
