Bondo Resin Ratio

Hello Stan Winston School! I just bought David Monzingo's lesson on making rod-puppets. One material he used is bondo resin, which he stated in the lesson was bondo body-filler that is just thinned down with polyester resin. Any rate, he didn't really state any ratio in his tutorial. Do you any of you guys know the body-filler to resin ratio I need to use?

    Hi Joseph,

    I've reached out to the team to see if we can hunt down the answer to this one for you!

    Thank you Chris! Also, you think you can ask them where you get polyester mud? I mean, do you add some kind of agent to polyester resin to thicken it into mud?

    Monzingo's lesson showed me some tips that could prove more than valuable to me, such Fiberglass molding, which I could use in making skins for my animatronic creations, as well as Jaw mechanisms.
