You got all that done today?

Put in the floor, painted some parts, welded some parts, poured some resin.

You will be done by Tuesday ! AND it looks great.

[QUOTE=dopamine16;236893]For my counter top's my dad kept hounding me about this epoxy resin, so I caved in & decided im going to do my counter tops on my kitchen & dresser with some art underneath.
My only problem is deciding what art to lay down below the resin.

The options I am going for:








Thought about doing a similar thing 20 plus years ago on my bar top.

Epoxy nickles down [years up] then cover for that smooth finish. I've seem pennies done.... it was USA map on the floor of a house.


Never built the bar when refinishing the basement, moved the fridge to the garage...problem solved.

I'm not sure how successful this would be over something like a poster. The resin needs to grab the substrate at close intervals, or it could simply fall off in large slabs.

Pennies would be perfect, as would things like bottle tops or even a jigsaw if the resin could penetrate between the pieces.

If you had a regular school bus, you could encapsulate all your rivets.

Mixed hardware design would be Steampunk cool-

nuts
bolts
screws
springs
clock parts/gears
electronics
pebbles
sea shells
rifle shell ends

Man, you think you'll ever make it over here to the east coast?
Good fishing here, and treasure to be found down on the ''treasure coast".

redd- My dad want's to do his kitchen table with coin's, I could never do such a thing cause I would rather spend every last dime, nickel & penny on skydiving or Para gliders, after I finish my project. If I run out of money & start feening for a jump I would probably bust my countertops up to get the change any way's.

Burlking- that is hilarious, I was leaning more towards that one too, well that makes three of us for that poster I think we have a winner.

Twigg- I guess I will have to test it out on a smaller poster first, if it doesn't work they print them on canvases as well, so it should be ok when I find the right materials, I still will do more research on the matter.

RUSTY: encasing your rivet's is something you wish you would have done.? I got plenty of nut's & bolt's I wish I was into steam punk.


ECCB: One of these day's I most definitely will, maybe not within the next couple years but stranger things have happened. When I finally do make it to Florida I look forward to you along with the other great members of skoolie to show me around. I think Florida is on the map.
