Only a few minor changes separate David Gross's final "epOxy" painting from his original rough.
Originally, Gross made the letters of the epOXY logo all the same size, à la EPOXY. Rendered that way, Topps felt it was hard to figure out the name of the original product, so Gross repainted it so that the EP was smaller. Gross added more detail to the top of the box, as well as the new joke "Make Zits Stick!", while he was painting the final.
Gross paid tribute to the 1973 Wacky title "Botch Tape" with the image of the two flies stuck in glue.
The Topps Vault sold the finished art for "epOxy" for $2125.00 in an eBay auction which ran from January 26 - February 2, 2006.
