Has anyone ever tried using artist pastels, chaulk form and/or oil, on a bait and then used epoxy? Wonder if all would be ok?

If I had to choose go with the oils. You can work them around with turpentine so they smear or blead.
The chalk is just that chalk. It is going to need a good tooth and will flake easily.

Yeah good thought. I might be able to seal the chalk though?? We'll try it and see, thats one way to find out huh?

epoxy won't stick to oil. thats why epoxy topcoats fisheye so much, because oils from fingerprints repel the epoxy and leave a bare spot, aka fisheye.

Thanks fisheye, that makes sense too. gonna just try chalk and seal it first. See what happens.

lol my name isn't fisheye, fisheye is what its called when a clearcoat is repelled by a spot of grease or oil on a surface, leaving a little bare spot, or "fisheye".
