Tape along the back of your piece is a quick and easy way to prevent drips from forming directly on your artwork. 1) Before you resin, apply tape to the back of your artwork. Tape will catch the drips as they form. Here at ArtResin, we like using painter’s tape or sheathing tape.

How do you evenly spread epoxy?
Spread a thin layer of a well-mixed epoxy by using a squeegee first and then use a brush to finish edges. You can also use the “W” method to ensure an even finish and go over it with a back roller to reduce air bubbles and help spread out any areas which might have excess epoxy.
Can you cut epoxy on a table saw?
Once resin is cured, you can machine it, meaning you can cut it and drill it with power tools without concern. So, set up your table saw and lock the guide into place so the artwork will run smoothly along the table at the perfect spot.
How do you keep epoxy from running off a table?
You will also want to fill your seams between your boards to keep epoxy from flowing out between your project and between the dams. You can use silicone caulk for this to allow for easier removal later on. Another method for doing bar tops, tabletops and countertops is to let the epoxy flow over the edges.
How do I prepare my countertop for epoxy?
To properly prepare a porous surface for epoxy application, it is recommended to thoroughly clean the surface and seal it by skim coating. Skim coating seals the surface and prevents your substrate from soaking up the epoxy and air bubbles from forming during your flood pour.
Can I pour epoxy over epoxy?
Can I put another coat of epoxy over cured epoxy? Yes. Since the epoxy has cured a chemical bond is not possible so what is called a mechanical bond is needed. This simply means that the cured epoxy has to be lightly sanded before the next coat is applied: the first coat should have a matt, almost white, surface.
How thick should epoxy countertop be?
Most epoxy companies recommend pouring their epoxy at 10 mill thickness. To increase the durability and longevity of our epoxy, we designed our epoxy to be poured at 100 mills (1/8 inch) thickness. This guide is our recommendation for Countertop Epoxy products.
Can you use toothpaste to polish resin?
Using the sponge pad of your polish machine, polish the epoxy with the toothpaste. Make sure that you don’t apply too much pressure or the epoxy might burn. Let the pad gently touch the epoxy while spinning. When you run out of toothpaste, apply it again and spray it with some water!
How do you fix resin mistakes?
An uneven hardening of your epoxy resin can lead to dull, or even tacky spots. To fix an uneven epoxy finish, wait until the epoxy has dried thoroughly, and then sand it lightly with fine-grained wet sandpaper. After this, make sure to wipe down the surface, so it is entirely free of any sanding dust and other debris.
