When putting down gold foil for decorative butt section I have been having a problem a couple times of the glue being used reacting with epoxy and getting major fisheyes.

If I was to put a layer of color protector over the foil before applying the epoxy do you think it would seal it and allow the LS to bond properly?

Thanks Rick

I think it would, but recommend, now that you've found a problem, that you test the solution. Simply do what you plan on a scrap blank section and see if it works.

It should. Do as Michael said. More than one coat would be best.
