Guest Posted August 7, 2014 Report Share Posted August 7, 2014 I will hardly guarantee success with the Webber product, but I had no seeding or worms , I did heat the oil to a smoking temp before adding crushed limed white pine rosin, also a batch made of 'amber' that worked well . I only cooked until I got a foam on top and a faint smoking, then shut off the heat and let it coast to cool in the sand bath, I did also add kerosene/ lamp oil ,that I tested for full evaporation, and filtered while warm, there was a small bit of junk in the filter, maybe these were the 'seeds'??? maybe just got lucky with the four batches .??? The one bad experience I did have that resembled 'seeding 'was two small dime sized areas that the varnish receded from , I think something got on the surface and acted as a resist , after scrubbing with pumice and water , the next cote went on fine... Hello James Would you please explain more about your process of varnish making? How you incorporate the lime and how much?...What temperature you cooked the varnish at and how long?...How long does it take the varnish to tack and stay open?...How long does it take to firmly dry to touch without taking on impressions?
