Re: Using brush instead of spray for gel

There is a youtube presentation by TAP Plastics that shows what looks like a disposable glue brush being used to apply gel to a vertical surface. I thought that it would remove a couple of steps from going the preval sprayer route. Plus I would not have to thin with the styrene if I go that route. A small foam brush might also be an option. Apparently the demonstration used a non wax gel in that it showed three ways to get it to cure. One being applying heat via either a hair dryer or sun, two via the standard PVA? spray and thee via a celephane sheet to block the air so that it fully cures. It does not mention the wax gel which does not require any of those steps, but someone suggested that the wax gel is a pain to work with. Also I really don't want to fill in those grouves and I'm just trying to cover the small pimples thinking that a thin coat of gel will hide those flaws.
