How to use
1 In a small glass or polythene container (I use a small plastic film container) mix well one part hardener to four parts plastic coating. For example I use a plastic teaspoon and mix one teaspoon of hardener to four teaspoons of plastic coating. You will be surprised how far this will go and once mixed, it is good for 2 or 3 days in an open container.
2 Now all you do is brush on 3 or 4 coats at approximately 1 hour intervals, apply quickly and evenly, do not over-brush. It is important to apply all the coats on the same day.
3 Leave for about 2 days to harden. This will allow the coating to harden thoroughly to enable it to be polished to a very smooth, highly polished surface, a lasting clear brilliant gloss.
4 Lightly rub this hardened surface to a smooth matt appearance with 0000 steel wool or 600 wet and dry silicone carbide paper, taking care not to rub through on the edges.
5 MIRROR - LIKE GLOSS FINISH Now burnish the smooth matt surface with the Burnishing Cream. Apply with a damp cloth, start with hard pressure but finish with light pressure, polish off with a soft dry cloth.
