Surfing School - Glassing - Pinline Ink
Apply the ink using whatever tool you prefer. I like using an artist's knife and applying the ink like putty, but many people prefer to use a narrow brush or apply directly from a tube. A brush is used if the pinline is resined on. If resin is used, mix about 200 cc of resin with 6 drops of catalyst and two drops of DNA hardener for a fast hardening batch.
The tape must be pulled immediately after applying the ink or resin. Work quickly when using resin since the tape must be pulled before the resin starts to harden. Resined pinlines that look wobbly after removing the tape should be immediately wiped off with a clean acetone saturated cloth, or with razor scraping if they have started to harden.
Resined pinlines must be completely hardened and set before they can be glossed over as glossing to soon will cause them to bleed. Press your fingernail on the pinline and see if it is hard enough to not show any marks. Inked on pinlines may be glossed immediately after application.
