This kit has been specially designed to complete Clock and Barometer, Dial restoration. Please note:
This cellulose based lacquer is fine to use on clock dials as long as the first coat is a very quick, light coat. It can then be applied heavier/thicker after the first coat has dried.
The lacquer should only be applied thinly to engraved dials.
Dial wax will melt and run if too much lacquer is used.
A soft cotton cloth or cotton wool pad can be used; a quick swipe is the usual method then leave to dry before touching or attempting to add more lacquer.
