Step 2: "Fiberglassing"
Fiber glass resin (with its hardener)
Fiber glass mat
Aerosol Can Lubricant (WD-40)
Protective Eye Glasses
Prapare a table with Aluminium foil, spray lubricant over it. This will help us to avoid the resin stick to the table.
Cut the Fiber Glass mat in small or big strips depending on the part size.
Put your gloves, protective eye glasses and respirator. Mix a small portion of the resin (I used 1/4 of a cup) with the catalyst (10 to 20 drops, depending on the weather, if it's hot, with 10 drops it's ok. As long as you work with this you will know how many drops you'll need). Once the catalyst is added, you will only have 15 minutes to work with it aprox.
Start applying one strip of Fiberglass Mat, and resin over it in the inner side of the part. Repeat this until you have all the part cover it.
After applying the first layer let dry about 15 mins, and continue with the second layer. This is really important on the big parts, like the chest, back, legs, helmet etc, because 1 layer stills flexible and weak.
Resin the outside of the part very well and letting it dry 24 hours.
After the part is solid to the touch, trim the excess of fiber glass mat using the dremel tool .
TIP: Let dry the parts under the sunlight, the heat accelerates the drying process.
