I've never made a stock,but i've used lotsa glass.It gets a little tricky,it shrinks as it dries,the hotter you mix it the more it shrinks.I would use some good stuff,i'm sure like anything else it isn't equel.You can get some WILD colors now,try Dennis kirt watercraft cataloge.

Use epoxy resin; far stronger than polyester/vinylester, and shrink is almost zero.

The big problem is setting up the flanging on the molds- it gets complicated.

Good luck!
