If there is no ready putty, you can prepare it yourself. for high-quality putty, you will need 1 share of drying oil of natural or linseed oil as well 4-5 chalk elements. Chalk is used in full dry, sifted on a frequent sieve. Instead of a sieve, you can use a nylon stocking. The thinner the drier chalk, the higher the quality of the putty.

On a metal sheet or plywood, a thin layer of chalk is scattered over the top and is also filled with linseed oil so that a large surface can be wetted. If you pour the linseed oil in the middle of a pile of chalk, it will take more time to mix. The chalk moistened with linseed oil is rolled with a spatula or spatula to the middle of the metal sheet, or the plywood is additionally mixed by hand. At first, it will seem that the linseed is lacking, and the putty turns out to be dry. This impression is deceptive. Prolonged mixing acts putty soft and plastic. The prepared putty should be perfectly homogeneous (without additional layers of chalk, no additional drying oils), should not adhere to the hands also to the knife, and have a smooth, bright surface on the cut.

In the process of preparing the putty can tint in the right paint. for this you need to add whitewash or another paint to mix additionally up to the working consistency. If dry paints are added to the putty, it is best to mix them with chalk, but thickened with drying oil. If the putty turned out to be liquid, you should add a little chalk to it, if it is thick, linseed oil, but then mix it with your hands.

There are also other putty recipes you can make yourself.

Recipe number 4: 11 parts of crushed sifted clay or lime-fluff and 5 elements of tar (when using this recipe, you should keep in mind that tar putty cannot be painted with oil paints, as if dark spots will appear).

Putty on linseed oil oxol is also on tar prepared similar to the main recipe. Putty with grease or nigrol is prepared as follows. In the melted grease pour ash additionally mixed. Then, while stirring continuously, add cement. This putty is consumed at once after preparation in a warm form.
