A good method of thickening epoxy without running, use “Cabosil” to whatever consistancy you need. It will keep it from running. For sanding, I like “microlite” filler from West System.
Did the Tudors smell?
Modern noses would find the smell of the Tudors disgusting…. Tudor bodies were never washed in the way modern bodies are- with gels and shampoos. In 1559 soap imports worth over ?9,700 came through London’s ports, but most of this never cleaned a human body.
