Default Stix-It Question

When one side of a wing is covered using Stix-It and Koverall, do you brush a coat of it over the edge of the covering so that the overlap will adhere to the layer underneath it?

Right! Treat it as if it were bare wood. Max H.

And... if you want a really nice fabric join then lay down some masking tape first. Pull fabric over the overlap and 'stiple' the Stix-It through the fabric and up to or slightly over the masking tape. Once it 'cures' use a very sharp knife to cut the excess fabric. Works a champ with nice straight fabric overlap and no fuzzies!

Thanks for the suggestion. What technique do you use for cutting the straight line?
