By varying the amount of thickening agent, cabosil among them, you can thicken or vary the viscosity of the epoxy or fairing compound. More thickening agent—higher the viscosity, less likely it is to drip or sag. However, using a plastic or waxed wood plate will lead to a much fairer surface than just slapping it on and letting it sit there... and will usually require less work to finish off.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
