Step by Step Instructions

Prep Your Surface Countertop

This first step to creating a beautiful exotic black marble epoxy countertop is to prepare
your surface to remove any nicks, scratches, and imperfections. We recommend
starting off by applying 2 coats of our Stone Coat Countertops Epoxy UnderCoat. This
layer of undercoat is very important as it helps create a chemical and mechanical bond
between the black marble epoxy and work surface. Once your undercoat has had some
time to dry off, we recommend giving your countertop a light sanding using a random
orbital sander with a 220 grit sandpaper disc. After your sanding is complete and you
cleared the dust off your countertop we begin to tape off the edges creating a dam to
keep the black exotic granite and marble epoxy from spilling over the edges.

Prepping the exotic black marble countertop

Mix Your Exotic Black Marble Epoxy Countertop Kit

Now we’re ready to begin the fun part of this exotic black marble epoxy countertop
project. Begin by pouring a 1:1 ratio of the Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy into a mixing
bucket and stir it together with a drill and paddle attachment for 2 minutes. Since this is
an exotic pour, you’ll want to mix up about 5 oz of epoxy per square foot.

Add Your Black Exotic Art Colors

In this next step you’ll want to pour out the clear epoxy you just mixed into separate
smaller mixing cups. Once complete you can begin to add all of your metallic dust,
epoxy dyes, and spray paint to create your very own black exotic art epoxy recipe. The
next step is to randomly add all of these single cups back into a bigger bucket while
adding spray paint between some layers. Disclaimer: Although you are pouring each of
the colors back into the same bucket, you don’t want them to mix and stir together.

Wash Coat/Pour the Black Exotic Marble Epoxy

Spread any leftover epoxy you have over the entire surface prior to pouring. This helps
promote the epoxy to flow. Next, it’s time to pour out those colors! In any fashion you
want, pour the black exotic marble epoxy out over your entire surface. You can’t mess
this part up; the epoxy will do the hard work for you! Just make sure to get the entire
surface covered.

Move & Meld The Black Marble Epoxy Countertop

By tilting or using a heat gun, torch, stick, gloved hand, or anything you have, move the
exotic granite and marble epoxy around until you’ve gotten your desired look. Using a
heat gun or torch also pops all the bubbles. Make sure to torch the entire surface at
least 3 times to ensure the epoxy levels out perfectly.

Peel The Tape & You’re DONE!

After allowing your black exotic marble countertop to cure for about 1 ½ hour, come
back later and peel the tape off, and with a gloved hand rub the edges so the epoxy
flows over the edge perfectly! Once completed, let your project harden overnight, and it
will be ready for a clear coat the next day
