    That should be Home Made opps...been looking into this and talcum powder /resin is another option but waiting for my 2.5 gun to arrive trouble is here in the Philippines no one sells any thing the locals won't use.

    More expensive than cheap filler, and much harder to sand.

    If you can't find sprayable filler, look for a sandable gel coat.

    Also instead of trying to make resin thicker for sanding, try and make a sanding filler thinner for spraying. Resin and styrene would be best, but you could make acetone work too.

    I bleed styrene, bathe in acetone, and sparkle like a Cullen in the sunlight.
