Epoxy;-) any decent 5 minute for the topcoat (zpoxy, devcon, superglue brand, etc). On the first, shape setting coat I use Pugliese 1 minute. That step isn't worth 5 minutes of time. I use pugliese because most of the other 1 min. to 90 second epoxies I've tried set up in 1 minute, but remain soft, tacky, and rubbery for 12 or so hours. Pugliese is ready to finish right away. there may be some others that work too, but I haven't found them
Super sweet! Is pugliese found in fly shops or somewhere else? I tie some epoxy head sand lace but have never used that stuff; it almost looks like they are dipped, but I am guessing it's just a smear and twist technique of sorts? Nice ties.
