After using the laminating resin (Evercoat # 100560, 100561) Use one of these final coats Depending on the particulars of the project!

Waxing resins: Also called Finnish coat.
Marine and Fiberglass Resin (Evercoat 100552, 100553, 100554, 100517, 100518, 100519, 105498, 105499, 105501 and 105502) are non air-inhibited or waxed resins. They are for the final coat. This resin cures with a hard, non-tacky surface. When the catalyzed resin is applied as a final coat to the laminate coats of resin, the wax rises to the top, sealing off the air and allows the resin to cure to a hard finish, which can then be sanded, painted or gel-coated.
NOTE: Cannot be used with aluminum, redwood and/or close-grained woods like oak or cedar. For redwood, cedar, oak or other oily or close grained woods, Evercoat Everfix Epoxy (100642, 100643) will provide the best adhesion.
Do not use with Styrofoam.
Forgot to add this: If using Epoxy resin it also has a downside in that an amine blush, which feels "waxy" on the cured epoxy, the waxy blush must be washed away with warm water before successive layers can be laminated! if you don't do this your layers will eventually peal like a loaf of sliced bread!!
