Default Finishing epoxy over nitrate dope

Is Finishing epoxy ok to overcoat a sheet balsa base that has been given a couple of coats of nitrate dope to seal?
Thanks

Hi Flatspin7

I am not sure why no one has replied to your question, but I always seal bare balsa sheeting with nitrate dope before glassing to prevent the balsa from absorbing too much epoxy. Again, I apologize that your question was overlooked for so long by our members.

Good luck
