I am a newbie here, but having a bunch of fun with repainting cranks with the help on this site. I did a bunch of searching, but did not find any answers to this.
Has anyone tried using epoxy resin for laying up fiberglass as a topcoat? I have 1/2 gallon left over from fixing my boat and would like to get some use out of it. I dipped and dripped a few baits and they seemed to do pretty well. The finish is a bit thick though(did dip 3 times...maybe that was it)...if I thin, will it still set up hard? West systems says thining reduces strength....however, I am not working on a hull, just a bass crank.
Additionally, I was planning to try and pour a swimbait out of this resin with some glass bubbles in it. Anyone try that?
If anyone has an opinion, let me know.
