    Covering stripping tape or graphics

    Do graphics or tape always feel raised after clear coat. Is there a way to blend them in so they do not feel raised.
    Thanks

    Filler on wood

    I want to finish the edge of 3/4 inch plywood after it is cut. Is there a filler that will work on wood and stay bonded.

    Thanks, Rick
