Can't really tell ypu about costs, but I would go for more epoxy and less varnish. The epoxy will do the work, the varnish is only really needed to protect the epoxy from yellowing from UV light. I would recommend that you use 2 pack varnish. Neither material comes cheaply but spending now will save you much work in future years.

Happy varnishing.
