Doctor Ben's Weathering Solutions--In my quest for the ultimate
weathering process I remember finding a four-step, four bottle product back in
the 1980s that stated it came from the
guy's driveway and I tried this for a while. I then I tried the 'Steel wool &
vinegar rust' process.
I really liked, but the thought of the rusting processing continuing even after
the application scared me. I tried flushing with water,
but this washed the finer particles away, and I still was not sure that the
rusting process had been stopped. I even tried sealing the finish with a dull
coat—too labor intensive.
And then one day I literally fell over an
idea as I was helping my brother install some custom cabinets on a commercial
job site. The long story short is that although my formula has changed over the
years, AND, a lot of folks have tried real hard to copy my Doctor Ben's
products, but they still haven't come close. I do say that this product might
not be for everyone; but the fact that we have sold tens-of-thousands of jars of
Weathering Solutions leads me to think that folks like using our Doctor Ben's
Ben's Weathering Solutions are available in 8 ounce (only a couple) and 4 ounce
(volume) wide-mouth recyclable jars individually and in money-saving 4-jar &
8-jar sets. All Weathering Solutions sets include the 8-page
color Doctor Ben's How-To #1 Turning Toys into
Models Booklet. Each has a description instructing its use and maybe
modeling techniques used to get the most out of this item. As always, if you
have questions, please ask!
