Three times I have tried using it . First time a year ago on a bench, next two times in a kitchen. I tried using the recommended sealer on two of these uses. Once direct onto timber. Each time the results were the same a very uneven and pitted finish. Regardless of using a torch. This product is not fit for purpose and expensive. I see other have wtitten articles of praise. Maybe its possible some of the product is contaminated. My experience , steer well clear, and buy a two pack fibreglass clearcoat instead. More reliable
Amazingly simple to use - really nice finish
We bought this product to finish a soft piece of cedar mounted on knee wall in the entrance to office.
The instructions were easy to follow - seal timber with clear varnish, then clean properly with metho to remove finger prints etc. Mix both bottles and stir well for few minutes.
Applied to timber and used blow torch to remove bubbles.
The resin set hard overnight and finish is just like glass - so smooth and clear. Perhaps some very minor ripples in finish if you look across the surface at low angle. It doesn't add any colour tint to the final finish either.
Very happy with the finish - so I don't know why so many people have issue with their finish.
Follow the instructions
I used Glass Finish on some small wood slices to make two trophies. Absolutely thrilled with the result - came out as good as I hoped it would. All I can say is follow instructions carefully and measure accurately. I sealed my surface prior to application with Proof Coat and then placed the emblem/decoration in place on the wood then applied glass finish.
Professional finish first time.
What more can I say?
Absolutely superb product
Brilliant product and I use it every day .
Two parts poured together completely and stirred slowly for 2-3 minutes till clear not yellow.
Then pour onto surface and spread with stick provided or a spreader ( a paint stirrer works well )
Then blue plumbers blow torch gently waved across the top as the glass reacts to the timber and forms pockets of air that need to be released as it's hardens .
Twenty minutes later I'm left with a beautiful surface and in twelve hours it's gorgeous and 24 hours touch to use .
Bought this to finish a lighter but nicely figured piece of wood. Spent ages preparing wood before applying this. Used high quality brush. This stuff goes on like tar, uneven finish and colour. A complete waste of my time and effort. Avoid this garbage at all costs. I'd give it no stars if I could
Awful purple-pink tinge in walnut wood stain
Awful, horrible, waste of money. Patch tested and seemed okay so used on a larger part of my project. Turned the cabinet a horrible puce (think browny- purple-pink) colour. Tried to remove with metho most of the brown came away, left the cabinet pinky coloured. Have to sand off and retain with something else. I hope what ever I buy next can cover it up.
Glass Finish - Epoxy is an ok product if you prepare properly
It's always easy to blame the product. I do a lot of woodcraft including redgum natural edge desks, coffee tables and other various items. I have used this product many times and have had no issues. I live in Ballarat - Victoria where the temperature can be all over the place - hot, cold and that's usually a factor when setting up to apply epoxy. I have never has issues with this product - as my preparation and application were done correctly. Jack from Ballarat.
Looks good when applied correctly
Doesn't come in larger volumes.
Was advised by 2 different bunnings stores to use this product to apply onto travertine table,was skeptical but trusted them , applied to perfectly clean and sanded italian travetine dining table .I stood around with small blowtorch to [suffocate ] the ridiculous amont of bubbles forming on the surface ,needless to say was not succesfull ! will have to strip and redo with something else , do not waste your money on this [censored word removed]!!! I have used many 2 part epoxy and urethane finishes in the past with success ,this stuff is no good
Constantly bubbling ,would not tack off for ages ,then all of a sudden just skinned of will all these huge bubbles in it
Dont buy Feast Watson Glass Finish Varnish
Three weeks ago my husband & I installed new wood bench tops in our kitchen ($450). We used Feast Watson 'Glass Finish' product ($180). The instructions said to allow 3 days to dry hard, however after 7 days 20% of the bench top was still sticky. We called the company for advise on how to fix the 'sticky' sections. The staff suggested that we wait longer or apply more product if it is uneven. We bought more product ($180) and applied this to the bench tops. We waited another week and were horrified to discover it was worse! Now 50% on the bench...top is 'tacky'. We had arranged for a tenent to move into this rental property in a weeks time & as we could not wait any longer for this product to set, we were forced to buy more new bench tops ($450) & take time off work to rip out the tacky bench tops to install more new bench tops. The Feast Watson advise that weather conditions must consistantly be between 10-30 degrees. This may seem ok at first, but consider...this rules out using the product in Winter & Summer. Even in Spring & Autumn, evening temps often drop below 10 degrees & day time temps above 30 degrees. The company says that humid conditions are also not suitable, so this rules out a large chunk of the country. Why produce a product which is so limited in it's use??? Don't buy this product as it won't set to a hard varnish as promised by the maker.
