Thought I would share my recent disaster and learning experience. I ordered some blank squarebills and painted my first one. I was ok with the way it turned out and was excited to get a finish on it. I went to every hardware store in town and could not find the Dexcon 30 minute epoxy. I was able to find the 5 minute epoxy though. I thought 5 minutes is plenty of time. Man, was I wrong. One side of the bait looks nice, but the epoxy started setting up shortly after moving on to the second side and it looks bad. 5 minutes isn't enough. So, this is my first, and please any and all criticism is appreciated.

Nice colors, overall its a good effort thumb. The dark coloring around the eyes is a nice touch. I get my D2T slow cure from Elliot's Hardware here in Dallas. As a backup I keep BSI slow cure on's available thru Hobby Lobby. Not sure but both are probably available thru their online stores.
