I wanted some kind of epoxy resin to use for cap coasters. I've never mixed epoxy before but it turned out amazing. my first time using this stuff and i would definitely buy more and will soon for more projects. I didn't want to make a cheap coaster so the epoxy worked well with the wood i used as well.

I hand glued almost $50 worth of pennies to our shower floor and had never used epoxy. I was nervous. I read and re-read the instructions. I brought a space heater in to keep room warm. I mixed properly. Timed it, added a minute . We poured it and smoothed it. We didn't need the heat gun at all. . The few bubbles that came up popped on their own. Then we walked away. It looks amazing. We were most concerned with it being slippery, but it isn't! Gorgeous copper penny shower floor. DON'T CHEAT ON MIXING TIME

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GK72 This works. Just follow the instructions.
My only observation would be that if the surface you are applying this has cracks, you STAY with it. After applying this to a computer desk and spent almost 2 hours bursting air bubbles, when I woke up the next morning I still found air bubbles on top on the cracks. As the glaze thickens these air bubbles still find their way up. They say it in the instructions to apply a thin layer first. Well it was my first time and I'm very happy with the overall result. As the glaze thickens after a while I wont use a torch or hair dryer, a needle will work fine.

Tried this in a pinch, no time to order my usual epoxy. This stuff is very yellow. As in, dark, dark amber. It mixes poorly compared to other epoxy glaze coatings. Epoxy coatings are difficult to work with to begin with- this product makes it worse. Seriously, this is like the old poly epoxies from my fathers generation. If you are working on an item you really care about, research the many other epoxies available. Smooth-On makes wonderful products, as does West Systems. West Sys also has more variants with different set-time, hardness, thin vs. thick. And comparatively, these are cheaper in the long run. This Parks epoxy is fairly low-tech and much more painful to work with. 1Qt isn't much for the price. This covered a 8x9 tray at less than 3/8 inch. You'd need 50 of these to finish a bar. You will need 3 mixing cups and a heat gun. The heat gun is absolutely necessary for attacking the crazy bubbles this Epoxy makes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jman48 Love this product!
First time user, but I was pleased with the results until I tried to repair a few low spots in my table top. It left brush marks because there wasn't enough product to push around and self level. After it cured, I figured what have I got to lose so I applied another full coat and it looks almost perfect again. Another precaution, if your project has edges, stick with it and keep smoothing out the streaks or you will have runs after it cures. Also, clean the first coat with alcohol before applying second coat. Enough said, I am very pleased with this product.
