Step 1

Snip off the plastic tab of the Epoxy container to begin.

Step 2

Squeeze a small amount of 5 Minute Epoxy in a disposable tray or paper plate. It is very important to use an even amount of the 2-part epoxy.

Step 3

Mix the 2 parts together thoroughly with a toothpick (about 20 seconds). Once you have mixed the epoxy, you have about a 4-5 minute window to work in before the epoxy becomes too hard and stringy to work with.
