Hi there, I made some varnish a while ago by using a recipe that I found online, to be more specific, it was a pdf file on Thestrad. The link unfortunately doesnt work anymore so linking it here wont help. Anyways, the recipe contains pine resin, linseed oil, and aloe powder. It said the varnish can be thinned with Gum turpentine to the desired consistancy afterwards. My question is, what sort of gum turpentine would be needed for this? If this is anything like linseed oil, there is so much different types which makes it hard to know which would be usable in varnish. Would I need 100% pure gum turpentine? I found 2 examples of gum turpentine on Ebay that can ship to where I live, can someone please tell me if this might work? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Turpentine-Gum-Therapeutic-Grade-100-ml-3-4-oz-Skipidar-All-Natural-/110992150787?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19d7a5d103#shId http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mylands-Pure-Gum-Turpentine-1-Litre-/190731553366?ssPageName=ADME:X:eRTM:GB:1123 Thank You. If anyone is interested, I still have the PDF saved, so I can provide the full recipe here.
