devcon 2T epoxy?

8 posts in this topic

I have been using Devcon (D2T) for years as well and I only apply one coat also. I do not thin it, so it goes on a little thicker this way.

For some baits, I put glitter in the first coat of epoxy. I’ve found that with glitter there are usually some bumps in that coat. I lightly sand off the bumps and then apply a second coat of epoxy. I thin both coats slightly with denatured alcohol, the second a little more than the first. On baits without glitter, I usually do just one coat.

If the weight of a second coat is an issue, but you still want to add some glitter, mix it into some Createx transparent base, and brush it on.   Brush lightly, and be sure your paint job is really dry,  so you don't move the paint with your brush.  I find keeping the brush well loaded helps.  Once the transparent base has been dried with a hair dryer, you can add just one coat of D2T, and you're all set.
