Default window glazing dry time

Are there any tricks to speed up the drying process of window glazing?? Restoring some old stained glass windows on an old church and the stained glass guy was asking me if there's anything one can do to speed up the curing process of window glazing ? If anyone would know I told him it would be someone on this forum. Thanks for any input

If the glaze dries too fast it will crack.

I've used this glazing once. I like it but is more expensive than regular glazing. Hope it helps

Hey, just add some plaster of Paris or cornice cement to the putty. Just a tablespoon, mash it up into the wet putty before you use it to re-putty window frames. Just a light dusting will do into the mix It will set in 2 days and then paint. We use to have to wait 2 weeks for the putty to skin off before painting in the good old days.
Bye the way , these days I just use flexible caulking for windows. It dries in 2 hours before painting !

Default hmmm

warmth + Time

Since glazing is linseed oil (or other oil) based I'm pretty sure that it oxidizes instead of "dries." Any attempt to speed this up might turn out badly.

Sorry mate, been doing this for 34 years without problems, perhaps try it once and report back the results before being skeptical.

Never ever heard of this Brian.How cool is that.I wish i would have known this last spring when i glazed 120 panes. I have also had good results with elastermic caulk for windows but really love the looks of an attractive bead of glaze.Just the beauty of it.You mention a table spoon powder mix to your glaze. Is that ratio tbl. to a quart tub of glaze?Thanks for the info.
