Nope, and I wouldn’t even try it. It’s too thick, IMO. More importantly, there's no fiber reinforcement. The strength of the bedding material comes from the fiber ... especially important in the thin areas ... the epoxy stick material is brittle in a thin layer.
The object, when making fiberglass-like material strong is to have the highest fiber to bonding material ratio possible. I've been known to pull a vacuum on many projects ... to remopve both air and excess resin.

There are plenty of products made for doing the job and making things easier. Brownells has some good stuff.
The last few times I bedded a stock, I used carbon fiber in an epoxy resin. The resin was made by West Systems … but that was only because I had the fiber scraps and resin left over from other projects.
Keep smiling ... it'll just make 'em wonder what you're up to...
