Well, I have taken a step back to my early chemistry days and have developed what I believe to be a good CP. I took it for a test drive this evening and had great results. I cp'ed a ferrule wrap with 3 coats and then varnished, all within an hour. The original color of the silk stayed nice and even with no discoloration. If anyone is ready to try something new, I will send out 5 free bottles to the first 5 pm's I get with addresses. I will even cover the shipping cost, you have nothing to lose. Even though I think it is great, you may not feel the same so I would suggest doing a test run for yourself. Let me know.

Thanks
John

Looking forward to trying some of the new CP, John. The proof of any color preserver really comes in a dip tube filled with varnish. Something about the head pressure of a four foot column of varnish causes any openings to show up..

I made the first batch of my cp quite thicker than other cp's I have used. After one coat, I wanted to see how well it penetrated the silk so I cut it with my exacto knife and the silk looked more like a ribbon, coming off in one single piece. I thought the thicker solution would help to fill in especially at the guide feet but I ended up thinning it down so it could be applied with something other than the paint brush I used. What I will send to those of you that replied will be somewhere around the consistency of milk but not as thin as water. I myself prefer the thicker version applied with a paint brush so that is what I will use.
