  • Speeding up cold enamel

    I have been experimenting with cold enamel. Has anyone managed to speed up the setting time?
    Many thanks in anticipation, although after using it I am now very good at waiting.

    If by cold enamel you mean a two part epoxy type (like chemset or similar) then yes, the setting times can be reduced with gentle heat - I pop things on top of the aga, but a tray over a radiator works, or a food warmer. Not too warm though as this will spoil the finish.

        So after having a play with the cold enamel I came to the conclusion that myworkshop is too cold. The stuff I did over the last day or so did not set and showed no signs of setting, sooooooo.....today I did it in the house in the warm and within 3 hours had thickened up so as to stop sagging. So I am now a very pleased old Hector (only those of a certain age will understand that)my thanks mizgeorge for your advice.
        Is there a tutorial on how to add rep points and photographs on this website?
