For woven cloth it is a 1:1 ratio by weight to find the amount of resin needed for the glass cut.
But you must add some for the timber soaking up a bit, a drop here and there,a wet brush and some in the mixing bucket.
I would as a minimum double the glass weight in resin.

Thanks for that.... Sounds like a lot less resin than I thought to wet out cloth...thanks again.
