Gamblin vs Dorland?

I think I have read on here a while back that these two brands of cold wax shouldn't be applied on the same painting. I am not sure what are their specific qualities and differences and why they can't be used on the same painting, can someone…See More

"Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I’ve found that I’m incredibly messy using CWM! I seem to get it all over my hands, which transfers to tools and everywhere else.  Maybe i’ll Get better over time."
