Glass weave visible???

Post by geordie » Fri Aug 25, 2006 5:36 am

I have basically smoothed the canoe down after the last filler coat of epoxy and there are a few patches where I have gone through the glass. I dread the idea of yet another epoxy coat. Is it possible to apply fresh epoxy to these areas with a sponge roller so as not to cause too many runs, or too thick a build up? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Geordie.

Sure Geordie. I've used a brush and put a thin layer just over the affected area and then very carefully sanded the area after the epoxy cured, feathering it in. A roller would be OK too.
