30 mins

best thing about it getting tacky and going off, gives you a better lift on the texture

You can mix the chopped strand in with the resin first, and talc after. What ever tickles ya fancy

Not saying it's the same. I didn't know of theirs. I kept making up my own filler (car body panel filler) and you have to do it in stages, by adding talc slowly. While it was runny I thought Ermm would make good paint. The chopped strand is a bonus

I think that what you had there was chopped strand matt with resin. Quite a lot of work involved in that process.

If you are going to use the chopped strand fibres, when the paint has cured, make sure there aren't any small spikes standing up from the 3mm fibres. If there are then just quickly go over the surface lightly with sandpaper

Is the ratio of resin to catalyst critical?

I tried doing small batches of 2 pack poly floor paint and often found I ended up with empty tins of hardner and loads of half full paint tins.

When you say chopped strand, are you saying these are short prices of what a David's isopn type matt would contain?

Cheers
