Epoxy Resin tabletops are easy to make, and the final output looks beautiful. You can unleash your creativity and make any design out of anything. Here’s an easy 5 step guide to get you started on your beautiful epoxy resin table top.
Prepare Your Base for the First Pour
Once you already have a tabletop prepared, you’ll be pouring your base on top of the surface. You can choose any base color you want, such as white, black, and gray. Make sure to spread your base evenly, and remove any bubble formations with a heat gun or a torch. Make sure to move around with your torch/ heat gun around the surface until it starts looking like glass.
Unleash Your Creativity on the Second Pour
After your first pour, you’ll need to prepare for the second pour, which contains all the other colors you want to see on your tabletop. You can get creative here by mixing different colors or using select solid colors. You can make a pattern based on the color you’ve mixed, but make sure to keep your surface even by laying the tabletop on a leveled surface. Remove any bubbles that formed, with the torch or heat gun.
Finalize Your Tabletop with a Clear Coat
After you’ve created your masterpiece, leave your tabletop to dry for at least 24 hours. Once it’s completely dry, check whether you’re satisfied with the outcome and make any modifications if necessary. If not, you can seal the tabletop by pouring a clear coat to give a layer of protection and durability. Clear coats also help achieve that transparent and glossy finish.
Clear the Bottom of Your Tabletop
Once you’re satisfied with the outcome of your tabletop, make sure to inspect the bottom and clear out any hardened epoxy. Make sure to scrape any hardened bits on the bottom to make it look clean and professional looking.
Attach the Legs
The last part you’ll have to do is attach the legs to your tabletop. You can use any table legs, depending on the style you’re going for and the height that you want. Regardless of your choice, make sure that it can support the weight of your tabletop.
Creating an epoxy resin tabletop is satisfying to make, considering how beautiful the outcome will be. Follow these steps and create your gorgeous table.
