Epoxy Resin Coating is Splotchy
« on: February 13, 2019, 06:02:06 PM »

I don't know if this is the correct placement for my post. If not please move it where it belongs.

I'm creating bottle wind chimes and coating the paper labels with a 2 step clear epoxy . The only problem I have on some of the bottles is the resin soaks through and makes the labels splotchy looking.

Is there any other coating I can use that won't do this? I can't sell them with splotchy labels!
Any and all advice or tips would be appreciated.
...the answer my friend, is hidden under a rock!

Have you tried decoupage, which is basically white glue with an alkalizer to neutralize the acid in the glue so it will not yellow with age.

I actually have no experience with this but I would try spraying with art fixitif if it is still sold.  Otherwise I'd spray with clear urethane.
