I would mix the regular WoodEpox and the WoodEpox-Cold together. You should use one or the other. You can use the regular WoodEpox in 50 degree temps, your can use the WoodEpox-Cold in temps as low as 35 degrees. You can use them in conjunction with one another though. For example, if you use the regular version and need to add more, you can use the cold version on top (or vice versa), they will bond to one another. What is the shelf life of WoodEpox® – Cold?

It should be at least 50 degrees F when applying the LiquidWood and WoodEpox for 2 hours prior to and 2 hours after application. If you are able to heat the area that would be ideal.

You can use the WoodEpox as a thin coat and to fill nail holes and large gaps. For the skim coat, you may want to thin it with the LiquidWood to make it more pliable.
