Honestly, it is likely an old Gatorglass blank, which has finish over the whole blank.

There are also ridges that will be noticeable, due to it being unsanded.

You might be far better ff picking up a new blank and save your self a ton of frustration.

Do you mean the epoxy covering the guide wraps or the gloss coating along the blank? Guide wraps are easy to remove. Heat the wrap a little bit with a lighter or propane torch. Just a little bit, enough to soften the epoxy. If you heat it too much you'll damage the blank. Spin the blank and keep the heat moving. If you see smoke, you used too much heat. Then use a razor blade along the guide foot at the end of the wrap near the ring. Once you "filet" a little bit of the thread and epoxy off the guide foot, you should be able to grab the thread and spin the entire wrap off, epoxy and all, if you softened the wrap up enough.
