Wood Epoxy FAQs:
How to use epoxy resin on wood?
If you want to add a little panache to your wooden fixtures, whether your floors or furniture, invest in wood epoxy. Here’s how to use epoxy resin on wood:
- Place yourself in a well-ventilated area and clean your wooden item by removing dust, dirt, and debris
- Once cleaned, mix your epoxy solution consisting of the epoxy resin and epoxy adhesive/hardener with a wooden stick, and after it’s mixed, pour it into a separate container or bucket
- If you want to add color, pour alcohol ink, chalk, acrylic or watercolor paint, or even eyeshadow into the mixture and begin mixing
- Once you have your epoxy solution ready to go, begin painting it on your wooden surface. In some instances, such as applying wood epoxy to a countertop, you may need to create an epoxy dam using painting tape, plastic, or wood to prevent the epoxy from dripping.
- If there are any air bubbles, use a pin, toothpick, or heat gun (not a blow dryer!) to remove them
- After you’ve applied an epoxy wood finish, set it aside and let it cure. It usually takes between 24-72 hours for wood epoxy to dry, depending on the thickness of the epoxy coverage.
You can also use epoxy to repair wood as well. For example, say part of a chair’s leg got chipped and you don’t want to buy a brand new one, you can use wood repair epoxy to fix the chip. Because wood epoxy is adhesive, it binds very well to wood, which allows it to fill in the cracks. To do this, all you have to do is fill the crack, knot, or chip with the epoxy. Just make sure you tape or block the backside to ensure the epoxy doesn’t run through.
Once you’ve filled in the cracks with wood epoxy, you won’t be able to stain the epoxy to match the wood because epoxy does not absorb any liquids. However, if you’re filling in a crack, you can use a gel stain that acts as a paint to make it blend in with the rest of your wooden piece.
Does epoxy waterproof wood?
Yes, epoxy does waterproof wood. Wood can be extremely fragile, and can become damaged from termites, water, and mold. In order to preserve wooden floors, tables, and furniture, you should paint on a fresh coat of epoxy wood finish. Even better, a wood epoxy finish will add a beautiful shine to your wooden piece, which will make it easy to clean with soft cleansers and water to make it look brand new.
How to color epoxy resin for wood
To color epoxy resin for wood, follow the directions for your wood epoxy solution kit. When you combine your epoxy resin with the epoxy adhesive or hardener, you can add a coloring agent that will change the color of your wood epoxy. Agents you can use to color your epoxy resin for wood include:
- Alcohol ink
- Acrylic or watercolor paint
- Color flecks
- Epoxy resin tints
- Epoxy resin paint
However, make sure you don’t go over the 6 percent weight limit, as too much colorant can cause your epoxy solution to not harden or cure well.
How to remove epoxy from wood
Because epoxy is an adhesive material that creates a strong bond to the surface it binds to, it can be extremely difficult to remove. However, to remove epoxy from wood, you can try a few methods. One method includes using heat, which can bring epoxy back to its liquid stage, which can be scraped away. To do this, make sure you’re in a well-ventilated area with proper safety equipment like safety goggles and gloves. Using acetone and a heat gun, melt away the wood epoxy and scrape it away using a plastic scraper.
Another way to remove epoxy from wood is by freezing it with refrigerant. When doing this, make sure you take the right safety precautions by staying in a well-ventilated area with safety goggles and gloves. Spray the refrigerant on small areas at a time that contains wood epoxy. Then, using a hammer, chip away at the brittle wood epoxy.
