CELLIRE thinner

Post by Variant » Fri Jan 26, 2024 1:46 pm

I am looking for a thinner for CELLIRE Varnish no.1 clear (FINE). Due to the new regulations I cannot purchase the recommended Unitit thinner from Veniard’s! Is there a product here that is compatible ? I have the old formula that contains Toluene.
Thanks ,
Lou

Have you tried mineral spirits?
Naptha may also work.

I use a lacquer thinner, which contains toluene and acetone. Veniards Celaire used to be a favor of mine. However, I stop using it once it be a came difficult to obtain.

Best of luck on your search.

Lou, Dana--

You can still get Cellire, Unitit thinner, and Liquid Wax from UK sellers--just ask around a bit. I recently added to my stash so I have enough for the next five years or so.

Like Dana says, there's Tuleone in Unitit--also methyl acetate in the new formula--but it all works well, and a little goes a long way.

What about shipping flammable liquids from the UK?

Like I said, just ask around a bit--surface shipping takes a longish while, but I can say it's worth the wait.
