    I've used SLO many times over the years (something I picked up from Max Longhurst ), and it works well. I recently tried another product , from Abteilung 502, a liquid flattening agent that seems to do what it says on the label, without breaking down the pigment. It appears to help the oil paint flow easier, much like the spike lavender oil.
    Onward and upward, we hope ;):rolleyes:

    stick ?:joyful: .

    Another thought as I sit here idle - Macintosh's pistol, with
    its distinctive scrolled butt and absent trigger guard, might
    be worth a mention. It's a 0.52 calibre all steel 'Doune' pattern
    produced by Christie and Murdoch of Perthshire. A more
    basic and much cheaper copy, made by Isaac Bissell of
    Birmingham, was issued to the 42nd's rank and file, but an
    original 'Murdoch' was the pistol of choice for the Officer class.
    The more wealthy of them often owned a matched pair decorated
    with exquisite chasing like these......

    Hi Mike

    Interesting about the pistols wonder what they are worth to a collector ...officersor OR's!

    Thanks for sharing

    Depends on which country Kev. A pair offered in a Scottish auction made £10,000, while
    in the States another pair sold for $25,000. Check your attic, Kev....you never know :)
