Default Kbs diamond finish

Does anyone use this? I thought I saw a thread on it but a search turns up
Nothing. I am trying to determine how this product is best applied to a pen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I bought it a few weeks ago, but haven't opened the can yet. I may apply to a bottle stopper today.

Will you brush or spray it on when you do apply it?

Check this thread.
Tempest with Cocinnia Burl

I have used it on most of the pens I've made (only a couple dozen so far).

I love it. So much better than CA. It's incredibly tough. I think you would have to try to scratch it with a tool. Just riding in a pocket with coins etc won't do it.

I am still refining the process but have been getting consistent results with my latest dipping methods. I wanted a finish that didn't require wet sanding, buffing etc. Dust nibs and humidity are the biggest obstacles. With the summer humidity here Ive been thinning 4:3 with xylene.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
