john..great idea to review topics and methods for those of us who live in the hills without access to high speed internet....

i wanted to mention a couple of things pertinent to this topic. though i have heard good things about crawfords paint putty, a discussion with a crawford representative will tell you that the manufacturer does not support using their product for window glazing. that does not necessarily mean that it will not work well and pass the test of time...

second, about six months ago steve and i tested the tooling capabilities of glaze-ease 601. well, it tooled well and i did leave it unpainted, but this past weekend i picked a piece off the muntin and it crumbled in my hand.....

just something to think about with no conclusive information either way....

Jade:

With the Glaze-Ease, what was the enviornment (temp, length of cure time, etc.) when you tooled it, and what has the exposure been over the past 6 months (in the shop, out doors, northern or southern exposure, wet, protected from rain & sun, etc?)

Did Steve do a sample too? (kept in a different location?) Did he get the same crumbling?
