Final finish coat

Hi All,

I just applied the final finish coat to rod I have been working on. In the dragon wrap portion I wound up with a blemish. Is it possible to only epoxy a portion of a butt wrap?

scuff the blem lightly and apply a touch of finish it will blend in and won't be noticeable

I would simply fix the blemish and put another coat over the whole thing. I think that trying to blend the two areas may not be effective. If you have natural "stop" for one section, like the end of a decal or something like that, then there is logic in seeing a change in the level of the finish, and a clean line becomes acceptable to the eye. Otherwise, I don't think partial coverage will work well enough.
