Yes you can! From time to time it may be necessary to add a second coat to your resin job. Here's how to do it!
You may want to add a second coat:
- To fix mistakes
- To repair damage
- To build up the surface and make it thicker
Applying a Second Coat
- If fixing previous mistakes such as uncured resin, scrape off any sticky material as best you can and discard.
- If you have before you a deep divot or crater, patch in some new thoroughly mixed resin just in that spot.
- Next, lightly sand the entire piece (including the cured patch, if you needed a patch) and repour a second layer of resin on top. The sanding provides some tooth to the first coat so the second layer will adhere properly. It will look a mess until you pour the second layer, and then it'll look great! Obviously you need to wait until the first layer and patch are 100% cured before adding more resin on top.
