After trying the B***o brand of polyester resin on part of my boat deck project, and struggling with several issues with it (the acrid fumes even with a respirator, thick viscosity, short pot life), I figured there had to be another way. I found Clearcast 7000 and bought the one-gallon kit. What an amazing product!
Mixed, it has the consistency of enamel paint. It can easily be poured out and brushed around with a bristle chip brush or a putty spreader, or the brush can be dipped into the mixture and painted on. It is thin enough to soak in to the wood somewhat, which is a real plus, but not so thin that it just runs everywhere. Note that the pot life I'm experiencing is about 30-40 minutes, after which it starts to thicken to the point of no longer being paintable...but I just mix my batch sizes accordingly, and 4-5 oz mixed volume seems about right.
My project is being done in an enclosed garage - in the winter - in Wisconsin - with the heater on. It is so great to have no fumes to speak of. It has a pleasant sweet/nutty aroma consistent with other 2-part epoxies that isn't offensive to me at all.
I am so glad I found this product!
