when gloss flattens out,is that process initiated or promoted by the heat of the chemical reaction?
J.R.- My take on glossing is that gravity and the flow characteristics of your resin mix/formula is what promotes a good glossed finish. Fresh resin with proper ratios of styrene and wax solution make a big difference in how it will lay down on the surface. A clean room, clean brush, and surface is just as important. If you set it off too hot you will (and I have!) get an uneven surface laced with brush strokes etc. The real fun begins when you try to gloss in high humidity or with an air flow in the room, glossing goes down in my book as an artform.
