Re: Strip: Milky finish
In Response To: Re: Strip: Milky finish ()

Rob, I used a concentrated dye mixed with denatured alcohol. Applied sparingly with a damp rag. After drying I applied another coat for a deeper color. One layeer of 3 oz. glass applied using West epoxy. When epoxy setup I applied another coat. After 3 days I sanded it and started seeing the milky spots. I applied two more coats of epoxy and did a final sanding before varnish and the blotchy milky finish got a lot worse. I am ready to varnish but haven't yet.
This is quite perplexing as the deck is beautiful ??
