Question

 

I have some of your dark brown flux, it has dried out. How to thin?

Answer

Officially you use deionized water.  We use tap water.  The minerals and additives in tap water can interfere with the action of the flux.  However this is sort of like losing weight by getting your hair cut.   It works but it is not usually very important.

Try a cheap kitchen mixer from Target or a garage sale blender.

The water is a carrier for the flux particles.  It makes it easier to get an even, consistent coating of flux.

You want the flux particles as small as reasonably possible.  If it is easier for you, then grind them dry and mix with water.

You can also use the flux dry as it is.   jsut sprinkle it on the work area.
