You sure master a lot of different techniques. Great to watch your videos.
One question: what type of varnish do you use? I saw the spray can in the video (part 4) but it was not very clear. And where do you buy it?

thanks, It's also part of what I'm studying (Industrial Product Design) So a lot of prototyping and so on, but the composites part I did on my own, lots of reading on the internet and so on... to answer to your question; The varnish is a simple spraycan varnish you can get everywhere in your local DIY store, It would be better to use a 2-part varnish and spray it with a spraygun but you would need a spraybooth and more expensive materials... so If it's not for professional work this should be more than enough!
Thanks. If you say it would be better to use a 2-part varnish...do you mean that 2-part varnish looks better or is it more durable (harder)? I was planning to use it on carbon parts of a small boat I'm building.

Durable! if you are planning to do a boat I would take 2-Part! The varnish out of a spraycan (1component) is more cosmetical and to protect the resin against yellowing from UV and so on... if you have a deep mould you can apply a gelcoat first, so you don't have to spray varnish on it... some gelcoats are UV stable... you should google a bit and find a supplier near you.
I used gelcoat in a deep mould in this project: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dn_xmEIiGQU
I hope you don't mind all the questions, but a spray booth is not really an option. I found a varnish on internet stating "2K". This is two components?
Can you comment on the product in the link below?
