With a lovely bit of kit like that I think it would be better modifying or replacing your glove , Ive had a lot of experience making fishing rods that may not sound that relevant , but believe me more resin and some form of particle may seem a novel idea but if you dont use really good masking techniques and running whatever grit through some form of seive your asking for trouble, you can buy glass bubbles for fibreglass resins in very tight size tolerance , try it out on a bit of wood before you commit to that piece of art mate ,
When i first started this lark i went into sports direct and bought the stickiest goal keepers glove i could find , spiderman amazing grip bit didnt last too long against a wooden post , still, fters wont have too worry about that , give it a go , break convention , lol
good luck
