    I'm currently working on a handful of high voltage projects, and I'm stalling out trying to insulate. Any suggestions for an easily obtained and relatively in expensive epoxy for insulating high voltage?

    Would there be any usable epoxies at the hardware store?

    They are not rated for insulation properties.

    There is also a substance called "corona dope", if you can still find it.

    if possible, you could melt some glass around whatever it is you are insulating. this would be cheap.
