This stuff is great for its intended purpose, which is not head cement. There are far better products for that. The best being Celire by Veniard. Softex is great for coating turkey tail quills before use so they are easier to work with. Also great for coating over big hair wing style streamers so they hold their shape. But still not the best for head cement.
It does make a hard plastic like finish if you blend it with V10 Glow Powder....I use it to make Glow fleas for ice fishing.
This product is a great replacement for epoxy and produces a very even finish. I prefer other products (such as loon hard head) for normal head cement, but for any flies that need a large coating (clouser, thunder creek Shiners, etc etc.) this is definitely the way to go.
