- Mar 30, 2004Another nifty tick is to put denatured alcohol in a spray bottle and wet down the surface of fresh epoxy. It will soften the surface and allow the bubbles to move up and out of the epoxy.
This is only a trick to be played in a safe area free from ignition sources but it does work.

A little trick that I use for a smooth as glass clear epoxy finish:
When the bubbles appear, wave a propane torch (the coolest
part of the outer flame) rapidly back and forth over the surface
and watch the bubbles disappear. I have heard that an electric
heat gun will work also, but mine was out on loan so I haven't
tried it. Be sure there are no volatile liquids or fumes in the area.
Also, if the torch is attached directly to a small cylinder without a
hose between, the flame will go out if you tip it horizontal. It works
much better with a hose set-up.
