How do you make a dam for epoxy?

Various projects require a temporary installation of an epoxy dam. 

One way to create it is by using a flexible plastic strip that won’t stick to the epoxy. Another viable option is to use wooden trim that is covered with at least 4 mil plastic sheeting.

Wax paper is also another great option to prevent sticking. 

If you have time on your side, you can create several layers laying down silicone caulk and building up a small wall too. This is also helpful when you want to build a custom look. 

Tyvek tape is very popular in our shop too.

Actually I’m using your resin for this project :) I’m trying to coat an outdoor table I made, but the surface is made with thick slats of wood, with 1/2" spacing between slats. So I can’t flood the surface. It’s clear (no pun intended) that the only way this will work is to dam the slat edges and flood. But that’s a lot of damming! If I used silicone caulk though, how do you get it off? That stuff sticks to things pretty well…I’m afraid it would take forever to get it off the table?
