Home Up Step3

   The next step is to apply the cloth.  I stretch it across the top of the tube as in the picture above.  Then pat it down against the wet tube and rotate the tube as you go.  You can work out the wrinkles and air bubbles with your hands or you can use some type of scraper or spatula.   Some people like to wear surgical gloves during this process, my hands don't seem sensitive to the epoxy and I prefer to just use my bare hands.  Of course you will want to have paper towels or a rag handy for when you complete this step.
