Default Plywood - painting, then covering with thinned epoxy

I'm building some skis from plywood. I'd like them to be white and waterproof, so my plan is to paint them white first, then coat them with thinned epoxy.


If you have any pointers on paint type, application method (spray or brush) and prep (before paint, between coats and before epoxy) I'd like to hear them.

Just use KlassKote epoxy paint, it comes in most colors including white. Very good and durable finish.

I believe I answered you question correctly on another giant scale sight.
