As slimtim says, you can buy it ready made. I've always mixed my own because different finishes can be produced by varying its thickness. I normally use about 60% resin to 40% gel. Add the pigment to taste. If it's to be a finishing coat, add a very small amount of 'Solution MW' which is just paraffin wax in styrene. I bought some a few weeks ago and it was a couple of quid for a litre.
The pic of the engine box lid is 50/50 and rolled on using a polytex type foam roller.
Gel coat is designed not to flow so it's plainly not much use as a flow coat on its own but laminating resin is just too thin.
A picture too for slimtim. Catalyst bottles.
