It has the consistency of bubble gum and tools very nicely when you run your knife over it. It claims to also be used as a general-purpose putty, though I haven't used it for this purpose yet. The only issue is, contrary to the directions, the drying time is considerably longer than "overnight" for painting it. I've found it's about 2-3 weeks until the glazing skins enough that it can be painted. It also says it can be painted directly with latex paint without an oil primer, and so far, that seems to be okay as long as there is a tough skin on the putty. I've found that if you paint this too soon with oil or latex, the paint will fail and peel off in just a few weeks. Make sure it's ready!
When you're replacing the glass, use a heat gun and a metal scraper or angled putty knife to remove the old putty if it's hardened. Get the rabbet nice and clean. Clean the dust out, and give the rabbet a good coat of an oil-based primer like Zinsser Cover Stain. That step is very important, you don't want to apply the glazing directly to bare wood, as the wood will absorb the oils from the glazing and it will fail early. Once the sash is primed, put a bead of glazing on the inner edge of the rabbet where the glass will sit, about as thick as a piece of yarn. This will act as a pillow, and seal and cushion the glass. Go the whole way around the sash. Set the glass in, pressing lightly. You may see some glazing squeeze out of the inside of the sash. Use the Fletcher point driver tool and regular triangle push points to set the points in (it's easier and safer to use the point driver). The points will hold the glass in place. Flip the sash around and cut off the glazing that squeezed out of the inside part of it, and tool the putty so it looks nice.
Now, you should have a ball of nice warm Glazol in one hand. Cut off a small piece with your putty knife, and press it into the rabbet. This takes some practice. Push it into the rabbet, pressing down. A nice, clean knife with a sharp edge works best. Try holding the knife different ways until you're comfortable. Once you get a little glazing in, run the knife down it to smooth it. When you smooth it, smooth it out to an angle that's at or just below the sight line of the inside of the window. Once you get to a corner, push some glazing in there, and cut off the extra with the corner of your knife, by scraping from the glass to the outside of the rabbet. With a little practice, you'll get it!
Keep the window sash outside where it can get some airflow. It's ready to go back in the window frame. Once the putty has a tough skin (it shouldn't be rock solid and will take a long time to get there), it can be painted with the paint of your choice.
Happy glazing! Youtube is your friend for watching this a few times before you start.
