Default Re: Flytying tips and techniques.......

When I tied saltwater flies, there was a need to mix epoxy with coloring or sparkle stuff. On my tying bench, I fixed a white ceramic tile (so it wouldn't move) that I mixed 2 part epoxy on. I could see the color clearly and only needed one hand to scoop up a dab on a stick to apply to the fly. when almost dry, the leftover could be lifted with a razor blade.
The tile is still mounted just to the right of my vise, and still serves as a background contrast for materials and small hooks (old eyes).
