I watched a couple of videos and thought that replacing the missing putty on the old window in my study would be easy!
I’ve managed, but it’s not great, so I’d welcome some thoughts please if I ever need to do this again.
One of the things I found was that the putty seemed to snag as I pulled the putty knife over it when getting rid of the excess. So it didn’t lie beautifully flat against the wooden frame as in the videos.
Also, I’ve now got oily smears over the panes. Any tips please for getting off the smears? Should I wait a few days until the putty has set?
Thanks for any suggestions.
