I have a few knots and a crack I would like to fill with epoxy. Problem is I can’t seem to find any information on painting it. I have been to a few vendors sites and read some of the labels at lowes nothing says you can paint it

So the question is, can you?

Yes, you can paint epoxy, but it must be scoured slightly with your choice of fine sandpaper or either bronze or steel wool. Be sure the epoxy has completely cured before painting, however, or it will not stick! The West System home page had lots of good information on using epoxy on all types of projects, including a restoration of an historical church requiring replacing sections of antique moldings using epoxy which were then repainted. I have used thin epoxy before varnishing on my boat and it held up very well.
