Future/Pledge Query

Postby TiG » Wed Feb 26, 2014 11:00 am

I'm sure that this has been addressed elsewhere on the forum (if it has been, I couldn't find it!), but I'm wondering where to get this miracle floor polish?! I have looked through various Coles/Woolies shops, and have seen a couple of different floor polish products on offer (including Pledge Wood Magic and 'LONG LIFE'), but not sure theyr'e suitable. Did I read somewhere that Future has been discontinued in Australia?

Until now, I have tended to use a Mr. Gunze spray can to seal models, but can see the advantage of using a finer spray of Future through the airbrush to seal/varnish models (not to mention cheaper). Assuming I can actually find some, does the Future/Pledge require thinning or any special preparations prior to application? I use Tamiya/Mr Hobby acrylics mostly.

Thanks.
