Has anyone tried Modge Podge for dope? I'm starting to warm up to EZ Dope, but the stuff is so expensive. Seems very similar to Modge Podge.

Did you know that you can get a quart of Nitrate Dope for $16 US? http://www.univair.com/paint-dope-fabric/view-all/randolph-non-tautening-nitrate-dope-clear/ and a quart of thinner for $11?

I have used Pledge in the past, but Armstrong Shinekeeper was recommended to me and turned out to be a superior product.

The reason I use EZ-dope is that is its water based. No significant smell in the house!d

Are you spraying or brushing? The old Pledge didn't work for we when brushed and it was a bear to clean the airbrush.

I brush a 25% - 30% solution in isopropanol, but you have to be sure to shake the bottle well to mix the product up first. It seems to settle. The person who recommended it uses an airbrush with an even thinner solution.

After going all the way round and trying all the alternatives I am back on Nitrate Dope, thinner and window exhaust fans!

Do you thin the Armstrong Shinekeeper with alcohol or something and spray it on? How is the moisture resistance outdoors? Does it work over decals? I'm guessing you can add acrylic paint to it too maybe? Just curious!

Sharbonda. I have not mixed the Shinekeeper with any acrylics, but there should not be any reason why not. It is not waterproof, only 'water-resistant'. I have never applied it over decals, but since it doesn't contain aromatic hydrocarbons, there should be no problem with it. I mix it with Isopropanol to speed the drying. 70:30 alcohol:product. I would only use it for sport models, because you might not like the finish on scale models.

Future Floor wax wipes off / dissolves with Household ammonia. 
Easy to clean brushes  with an Ammonia sheep dip, it  washes right out / off, even 2 years later.
 Don't like Future much though, as it's proven iffy for prosaic defogging of headlights .. only thing I used it for.
 Minwax Floor Laquer is Hardware store available (affordably)  in quart and gallon tins   and is for my purposes  clear Dope.
