Re: Color Matching
Posted by Dave Houser on Feb 22, 2005
I thicken with 90 percent fumed silica (same as Cabosil) and about 10 percent cedar sanding dust just enough to match the color of the wetted Okoume. The color does match well. I got the sanding dust out of my ROS catch bag. When using silica for thickening do not expect to sand the thickened epoxy after it is cured. Not a big deal when it is under glass tape but I do not glass over the bulkhead fillets so they must be applied to final dimensions.
