This is a DIY Chat Room for DIY'ers. They dont need to know about binders and resins and really anything about the chemical makeup. This one was having trouble assessing which one to choose from. NOTHING ABOUT BINDERS... That's for the Pro board. Its called "situational awareness"! Oh yea and not all universal colorants are NOT flat. Go get some and try it out.
With all due respect, Mr. Grant, I'm not sure it's our place to say what the DIY'ers "need to know..." - When we are asked specific, pertinent questions, I feel we need to respond in a manner that not only directs them toward a proper resolution, but also as to why one product/system/method may be more appropriate than another...
Besides, in my earlier post, I was addressing that info to you - not the OP. The reason was because you had made a couple erroneous statements in your earlier posts, and while it may not be necessary for the OP to know all this, you should (especially if you're going to respond as a professional).
I read your original post...I did not misunderstand what you were saying or not saying, but when anyone here responds to another with information that's not quite accurate, I think we all have a responsibility to get involved and set the record straight - Just as you have attempted to do with myself and other responders.
Each member has their own perspective to respectfully
add here to the benefit of DIYer's and responders both.
