Clear Epoxy Resin over Prints

8 months 6 days ago #693416 by Ririmo
Anybody have any experience working with clear epoxy or know someone that does? I am experimenting with alternative mounting/framing methods and have been looking at epoxies. I am thinking about covering dry-mounted fiber prints with one or more layers clear epoxy. Would this work? Am I crazy?

My concern would be the ultimate result of the reaction between the epoxy and the print or mount board causing discoloration/damage over time (multiple years). Also, the yellowing of the epoxy itself. I have read epoxy is UV resistant. Anybody know if you can put an additional UV coating on epoxy or how UV resistant it actually is?

And before someone who hinges mounts says it. I know this would not be archival or reversible...

Thanks!

Instead of epoxy, I used thick plexiglass… just me.
