Repairing a Historic Nativity Set Using Epoxamite
A historic Nativity set was in severe disrepair.  Barry Hoch from Creative Signs and Designs was called in to fix the beetle damage that had been done to this nearly century-old display.  With Christmas coming, the repair needed to be made fastEpoxamite resin with 101 FAST hardener was used to both fill in bug-damaged areas and coat newly created pieces to resist future insect attacks.  Thanks to Epoxamite resin, the project will be a long lasting testament to the history of this holiday display.

"Thank you very much for letting me experiment with your awesome product. It performed to perfection. It made the old bug infested oak stronger than when it was new. I will definately use your products again in the future. I will send you more photos of the whole stable when we put it up in about a week."
