I read somewhere tha tyou should do the solder lines first, then do the zinc as it takes longer to rub on and LET DRY before finishing with waxing or finishing compound.
Hope this helps.

I have used both on one piece several times. What happens to me is that the copper will bleed thru if I try to put black over. It happens, for the most part, when I polish the piece at the end. I am doing this on solder. I have yet to work with any zinc. Hope this helps.
