[Cob] heat oil, skip thinnersKindra Welch kindra at claysandstraw.com

Definately heating the oil is the way to go...skip the thinners all together. I have heard testimonies to the effect that heating your floor (turning on radient systems etc.) can at least double the penetration of oil beyond what thinners can do. I buy a used crockpot for a thrift store and heat the oil in it, no fires yet, though I always have consideration for keeping flamables out of range of the pot. And never leave it un-attended. Also if you have a bit of cash get high quality oil, linseed oil off the hardware shelf *stinks*. Or sun-cure raw oil. There has also been discussion on the adobe list recently that walnut oil has good success with zero smell.

Has anyone ever looked into making their own thinning agent for a linseed oil and beeswax floor? I have access to all the lemons I need, I just don't really know how to make it. Tys
