My epoxy resin adventure photos. Check it.
Resin mix is a touch gloopy, but spreads easily. The paper saturates fairly quickly. Photos show cured papercraft, it’s slightly translucent and wet-looking but acquires much more sturdiness. You might get some drips, but those can be easily sanded down. Epoxy resin doesn’t permeate masking tape, which means it peels right off afterwards.
Today I went ahead and fiberglassed both pauldrons and knee guards. Fiberglass tape doesn’t like sharp indentations and will tend towards airbubbles. I’ll see how badly it behaves in the corners, then sand it down and reapply some more tape.
I do recommend you dye your fiberglassing resin. A small drop of acrylic paint works just fine, and helps you see said airbubbles.
Guh, this is a lot of bleeding work!
