I guess Umpqua decided to repackage this product. The new wide-mouthed plastic jars say 1 oz., but they are only filled half-way and it looks and feels more like 1/2 oz. of actual cement. Nevertheless, it's still the best stuff for coating turkey quills or feathers for wings and wingcases...however they package it.
Great head cement dries clear and binds all the way to the hook. If you aren't going to use it for awhile i've found keeping it in the freezer prevents it from evaporating.
Flexament is a great head cement. They messed it up though with the plastic containers.(They used to be glass) They do not seal well at all. Which means the cement will thicken even with cap on, thus resulting in the constant need for thinner products. If you pick some up defiantly pick the thinner up as well.
Other thinners can give Dave's flexament a milky color. Thin the flexament for different tying situations. Try dipping your hair wings in thinned flexament before tying down. They'll hold up much better over time.
