I was planning on doing some things with liquid clay and one of the things that is often mentioned is using a heat gun to 'clear' the liquid clay after curing. So whilst I was pondering where to get a heat gun from I remembered that there was a paint stripper in the shed. And it works brilliantly!
I now use it a lot to cure super thin coats of Liquid Kato on cured beads - super fast varnishing! You get lots of shine and depth with very little effort. Without my trusty paint stripper I would not have been able to achieve the finish on my Faux Dichro, and various other creations. I love it!
