clean your plates with glass plus and isopropanol as i recently described.
coat the small plate with rain-x using a kimwipe, spreading it evenly. the
amount used isnt very important - its hard to go wrong even when you try.
let the coat dry (2 min) then apply a second. then wash with glass plus
and isopropanol, assemble the sandwich and pour. voila!
shouldnt have to reapply the rain-x for 10-20 runs, just clean the plates
with water, glass plus and isopropanol between uses. we have found that a
bottle lasts us for years - great stuff.
