Dip in Dick Nite and hang up to dry. Take a napkin and catch the drips as they form at the bottom of the blade.

I spray mine with powder and then cure, I don't use epoxy on them anymore as I found that it adds weight to the blade and it chips anyway because of how thin the edges are. That said, I like the CS clear coat because it is easy to use and goes on really thin which is the key, too much weight and the blades don't spin as fast and it takes higher speeds to make the blades spin with too much weight.

X2 with SJ -  I heat them and tap the powder on with a brush and then cure.
