EcoFill remaining tacky

Posted: Tuesday, June 3, 2014 3:47 AM Quote
I am new to the product and progressing well with my Tiger Moth restoration.
I am used to spraying surfaces on the flat rather than suspending them vertically. I support the part on trestles with a clean srtip of dressed moulding between the fabric and the trestle.
Even after leaving the EcoFill completed part for 48hrs before turning it over to do the other side, it ends up sticking to the timber moulding.
Does anyone have a fix for this please?

The Ekofill never hardens.  You really don't want to stack parts that are just through EkoFill on top of each other because they will stick to each other.  Try to separate items using masking tape, masking paper, or cotton bed sheet type material.  Put some masking tape over the wood you're setting the parts on and that should help.

Thanks Jason. I think the masking tape may do the trick.
Your videos show wings being held in a wing jig and the painting done in a vertical positon rather than horizonta,l as I am used to doing.
Do you recomend I obtain a wing jig and do the same?
My Tiger Moth wings cannot be supported at the tip end and I would need a hoop attached to the interplane strut fittings.
