Finishing balsa poppers

Recommended Posts

Superglue is a super permanent finish if you're good at applying it ( it can get tricky). We use it in wood turning projects too but like any finish it is subject to surface contamination and that could inhibit a good bond. Otherwise, water proof, super bonding finish.

 

Has anyone ever known any surface finish to last for ever on skin ? I haven't and Joe hit the reason on the head. Skin oil. Dyes and pigments in tatoos is a different story because it's injected into the skin.
