I am refining my epoxy coating technique for overlayment of appliqued designs and guide wraps, and am having some issues with entrained air bubbles in the formula I am using. I am currently utilizing Flex Coat brand epoxy. I am happy with the final finish but I end up having to perform a lot of wet sanding to get rid of bubbles and dents from popped bubbles. The manufacturer recommends letting the mixed material sit to allow bubbles to rise out of the mix. By the time that happens the mix is to thick flow nicely over the work, it ends up lumpy. Has anyone used the formula from this link for hand building. http://www.epoxycoatingsco.com/fishing_rod_coatings.html#one_coat I notice that they have a bubble illiminator in the formula? Any suggestions would be helpful.
