4. “Glazing Brush“ (for Cement Putty)
~*~ Read up & see how to use whiting, brush & fid ~*~
Use whiting powder to clean up the excess cement. Spread a light coating of whiting over the entire panel. Use your clean brush in a circular motion, brushing against the lead came and allowing the whiting powder to soak up the excess cement. Brush away any dry clumps and continue brushing – apply more whiting as needed. When the cement is cleaned from the glass, keep brushing to burnish the lead cames and polish the glass. Then flip over the panel and repeat the process, starting with cement application. After both sides are glazed allow glazing to set-up for a few hours (but no more than 24 hours), use a fid stick to pick around each piece of glass and clean away excess cement. Be sure the window is clean – once the cement dries, it is extremely difficult to remove. Allow the window to dry for at least 48 hours before moving. Small amounts of cement may ooze out from edges – use a fid to clean up.
