I find Ed's Red takes time to "dry"/get the excess off.
Does the Lucas Oil Stabilizer make it more so?
I would say yes, as it adds a slight amount of viscosity. The mixture I concocted (I call it "Alex's Amber"
) seems pretty tenacious. Incidentally, the Lucas will not go into solution with the rest of the stuff unless the MEK is added.
I opted for MEK as I wanted something a little less volatile than acetone. Even though MEK is more expensive and not as easy to find, I just *had* to have it.
It works well for me.
