Metal Glaze- what hardener?

I picked up some Evercoat Metal Glaze from a local auto parts store. It didnt have any hardener with it but the container says to mix with creme hardener. I asked the a salesman but he didn't know if it took the standard hardener like most of the other fillers or not?

So does it have a special hardener or just red creme hardener? I also got some blue hardener left over from a tube of dyna-glaze. Would that be OK?

Thanks

Use the blue hardner. Evercoat products all use the same hardner.

Evercoat switched to the blue (or white with Glaze Coat) because it "bleeds" or "stains" less (or not at all).

Forget the old red crap, it may not be good anyway, just toss it.

The thing is, the store should be giving you the RIGHT stuff with the putty anyway!

I know, all they had was the red stuff, and they didn't have a clue what hardener it used. They are mainly auto parts, not body work, but they did have the cheapest price I could find without paying shipping for one item only from mail order.

I'll just pick up some of they blue hardener from the actual paint store.

Thanks
