  1. Hi Gail,

    I was reading a post on WetPaint asking about using Epoxy Resin over acrylic paint and you mentioned a book piece you made. I am wondering if you would know if the two part epoxy resins like Gorilla Resin that sets up in 5 minutes would work or be a problem on top of acrylic paint? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jeffrey

    • Hi Jeffrey – I don’t have any experience with the gorilla epoxy. I’d suggest a trial piece if you want to make sure it works before jumping into your “real” work. The book I made was a one time thing so it was really an experiment. Good Luck!

What do you think?
