A few days ago I mixed up some Epoxy for a model I am working on, and still had the wax paper I used to mix the last batch. So to tidy up I went to throw it away, and as soon as I picked up the paper to wad it up, the glue literally exploded and shattered into a hundred pieces with almost no effort, It is as fragile as very thin glass like glass used to make Xmas tree globes.

So does anyone know where one can find some good pliable epoxy that does not turn to glass in cool weather?
The only time i have seen this happen if its old epoxy . I have used different brands from local hobby shops and craft stores with a good succes so far. joe
