Can you please tone your signature down a bit ? Thanks ...

Home Depot as has everything as well ... and there's a ton of online stores, too. Large chain craft stores also work, for the fleece.

Home Depot had everything I needed......and you can use an old sweatshirt or something in place of the fleece. You just need a material that can stretch somewhat and absorb a fair amount of resin.....

the select was nice and thin, and stretched amazingly

the wal mart stuff would be really incosistent as to absorption

How is it inconsistent? :confused: That doesn't make any sense at all

So in other words ... some area's of the fleece were absorbant, and others weren't ?

in my experiences yeah, it wasnt very uniform..and altho I know it makes very little differance when youre adding layers, but if you werent making much of a stress bearing product it would etc.

Are you sure you were applying it right? If you worked with more than one batch of resin/hardener, the ratios could be different, making the fleece appear to be "inconsistent" when it was just the mixture.....you could have been applying not enough in one area and when you went back the hardening process already began.....there's lot of things that can explain what you're describing, but I highly, highly doubt it's due to faulty fleece.
