Can this be painted?

I have a fire pit that is fiberglass and got cracked and chipped while moving. It's brown, so I would want to paint over if possible. Can it be painted easily and if so, what type of paint would work best?
Asked by: Jonathan
You can adjust the color by adding in small amounts of artists acrylic (waterbased) paints.

Is this product suitable to repair a surf board?

Asked by: Fixer
The answer is yes. Gelcoat repair is gelcoat repair. Gelcoat is a colored polyester material.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product may work, if it wasn't dried up I bought this product, which looked like it would be perfect for what I needed. However, I didn't get the chance to use it because the gel was mostly dried up. I tried for a long time to knead the gel and mix it back to the right consistency. Ended up with a gel with hard lumps. I got my money back without problem. But, I wanted to finish this project so I checked the other kits and couldn't find any of the 12 packs that weren't dried. There should be an experation date on the product. I hope other people have better luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy patch for bathtub crack I used this product to patch a very small hole/crack in a bathtub probably caused by a dropped soap or shampoo bottle. The directions were easy to follow and the product worked just as expected. The color match is not perfect but I imagine that would be hard to do. Took very little time and it saved me lots of $$. I watched a video on YouTube before beginning which suggested using a razor blade to scrap off the excess before it dried. This leaves you with less patch to sand down after the application.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective but Time Consuming I used this product to repair the skirt of a very expensive toilet (not the interior bowl). If you have a repair as large as mine be sure to apply the product in layers, allowing it time to cure between layers. Make sure the product is fresh. The first box I used (from a different store) was old, and the gel was almost hard. Unfortunately, there is no "use by" date on the package so you won't know until you unscrew the jar. While not a perfect color match, the repair is only noticeable if you get down on your hands and knees to inspect it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved my problem I had a tub/shower that had developed a crack in the curve of the side / bottom. By following the instructions this product sealed the crack and undoubtedly kept me from having to purchase a new tub and pay a plumber to install (since I'm quite sure installing a new tub / shower enclosure is beyond me). I was very careful to mix the paste and hardener thoroughly, and let it set up for 24 hours before sanding. After 24 hours it was rock-hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT! Our tub is 50 years old. It had a couple dings and bad spots. I was dabbing white acrylic paint on it, but it didn't last long. I thought maybe we should get it replaced. With the new tub, labor, plumbing, fixtures, mess, etc.....bottom line estimate was about $1500. I thought, what the heck? For $20 this was worth a try. It actually was really easy to apply and the directions are good. It's been about a month now. If you stand back, you don't notice the color difference. You really need to get right up to it to see it. The pictures show what was a fist size bad spot on the curve of the tube. The rest of it was just small dings. Use in a really well-ventilated area. The smell doesn't last real long, but it is very strong.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good product, incomplete kit I used this product to fix a hole in a fiberglass tub. The "kit" comes with an applicator (Popsicle stick), resin, hardener, two small pieces of sand paper, an alcohol pad, and some polishing compound. The product works just as i expected. It worked. However, I was a little disappointed with the kit. First: The applicator did absolutely nothing to help the aesthetics of the patch. In fact, it made the application difficult. I would recommend using a plastic putty knife or rubber Bondo tool. Second: There is not enough sand paper to sand the surface smooth. Third: The color didn't match and there is no pigment in the kit to tint it yourself. I was happy to fix the 1/4" hole and after 2 weeks of use it has not failed. Buy this product if you're not super concerned about the color match and also pick up some extra sand paper and an applicator while you're at The Home Depot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected This product worked better than I expected for my small repair area. Getting the full kit with higher cost of $20 ensures that you have what is required for the entire patch process, but after going through this once, I would be tempted to get the lower cost competitor package of epoxy only, though there is the risk that the specific epoxy formulation may not be as good as in this kit. The color match of white is not great, but you’ll just have to accept that. There is probably no great match to any color, though I thought that “white” would be straightforward, but my wife seemed to understand the many variations of white. This epoxy had a faint blue-gray tint as compared to my shower stall’s version of white. My repair was of two small areas where I hit the side of the shower stall with the plastic portion of a scrub brush while scouring the textured floor with comet. The fiberglass wall must be very thin there, since I did not whack it very hard, just bumped it while scouring adjacent to the wall. One spot punched through, making a hole about 5mm in diameter and a couple of hairline cracks radiating out another 5mm. The other spot did not punch through, just a couple of hairline cracks about 10mm long. To clean the patch area, I lightly scrubbed the surface with a sponge and comet, thoroughly wiped off the comet with a wet sponge, dried the area with a cloth, then wiped it down with the provided tiny alcohol pad, then some more with a lint-free cloth and my own isopropyl alcohol. In hindsight, I should have used the familiar “frog” tape used for trim painting to mask the limits of where I wanted to apply the epoxy, then peeled it off while the epoxy was still mushy. This would have helped to guide me when smoothing the surface of the epoxy and blending it to the surrounding non-damaged area without worrying that I was spreading it everywhere unnecessarily, as well as defining a nice clean border. The epoxy has a very strong volatile odor, so heed the instructions to have good ventilation in the area, lest you start hallucinating and make a big mess of the patch job. For this small job, I did not need to use ½ of the small jar of epoxy as the instructions say, just 1/8 of the jar was more than enough. The instructions say to use 3-6 drops of hardener for ½ the jar, so I used 1 drop for 1/8 of the jar, it seemed to work. I mixed the epoxy and hardener on a piece of folded aluminum foil, rather than on cardboard as the instructions say. The instructions say that there is a 15 minute working time depending on the room temperature, my mix ratio gave at least 20 minutes before the waste epoxy on the aluminum foil started to firm up. Wearing disposable plastic gloves, I spread the epoxy onto the patch areas using the small wood stick, and pushed some into the small hole with a gloved finger. I left about 1/16” of excess height with the epoxy since it shrinks upon curing. I was worried about difficulties of having to sand away too much after it cured, but the later sanding operation was easy, so do not worry about getting the epoxy blob perfect. I used isopropyl alcohol on the lint-free cloth (used earlier) to wipe away excess epoxy around the perimeter of the patch. I let the epoxy cure for a full day, as opposed to the minimum of 3 hours per the instructions. The kit provides small squares of 400 grit and 600 grit wet-use sand paper, and polishing compound. It is very important to wet the paper with water to obtain a good finish (note that not all sandpaper can be used wet). The small squares were sufficient for my patch, but a patch that would have required ½ of the jar or the full jar of the epoxy would probably require a full sheet of wet-paper. If you need a larger piece of sandpaper, be sure to purchase “wet-or-dry” sandpaper. My patches were on an inconspicuous vertical surface, nevertheless I tried to limit sanding beyond the patch to avoid scratching the surrounding area. The surrounding area did not seem to be marred after the sanding and polishing, but the angle of light at the patch location may not have revealed slight blemishing, even with a spotlight. The epoxy sanded down easily using the 400-grit paper with only mild pressure, the cured epoxy was softer than I expected. It helps to use a flashlight or other source of light held at various angles to the patch to reveal spots that need sanding to blend into the surrounding area. Likewise the 600-grit seemed to provide a nice finish with finer blending. I used a damp lint-free cloth with the provided polishing compound, and buffed well outside of the patch area to make sure that I polished out any scratching from the sand paper. The polishing compound comes in a small packet where your tear off the top, so I do not know if it will dry out and be useless if it is stored after opening. I’ll try taping the top closed to prevent drying out, though I hope to not have to use it ever again. In the end, the small patches appear better than leaving cracks or getting a whole new shower stall. I’ll have to see how they hold up with shower use.
