That sounds real interesting. I suppose I could use the epoxy over the powder paint to keep the eyes on, since I already powder painted most all my jigs?

Also been wanting to find something to cover up wooden eggs I've been thinking about trying, to waterproof them etc.

What do you recommend? I think you mentioned some epoxies in your other post but afraid that if I back click to quote it I'll lose this message. Thanks for the help.
