Jim,

I get the Milled Fibers from our local supply house. Its just ground up fiber glass. If you don't have any available I can send you some, let me know.

Sam,

I have never used Micro balloons as an material for increasing strength. Interesting that it worked that well for you.

I do let the surface coat cure before using the glass. There is no way you can get all the wrinkles out of that light fiber if its sticky. Heavier glass not as much of a problem.
In the old days of Gel Coat and Polyester resin molds we would use Vail on the tooling gel as soon as it tacked up. But the finish is not compatible with epoxy. This is why I go with light cloth. Vail is awesome to use as it conforms into every crease with no problem.
