I've purchased Venice Turpentine, the 1.08 oz jar / Sennelier and find on the bottle the suggestion that one dilutes the thick honey like ingredient with 20% turpentine.
The recipe calls for '5 parts Venice turpentine'. Does that mean of the diluted or of the bottled honey?
Anyone out there who can help me assimilate the information ?
My intention is to create about 12 oz of SDM
so I've figured that each part noted in the recipe will equal about 1/2 oz..
If I'm right, and depending on whether the venice turpentine is diluted:
we need either 2.5 oz of the honey or, if diluted 2oz with .5oz of turpentine?
That seems to be a lot of honey :-) ?
I am also assuming that the 'turpentine' can be substituted with an odorless alternative?
Any insights - education is much appreciated.
