How to Make Fractured Epoxy Sun Stone
Step #1: Add & Mix Additives
Add metallic powders, epoxy dyes and spray paints directly to your mixing buckets. Mix thoroughly with a mixing stick.
- Metallic powders
- Diamond Dust
- Spray Paints
- Satin Fire Orange
Step #2: Apply Wash Coat
Tint enough epoxy to thinly apply a wash coat to your project. We tint our wash coat completely opaque. Pour the tinted epoxy on the center of your project and use a mixing or paint stick to spread. Use your gloved hands to spread if you wish.
Step #3: Pour Out Tinted Epoxy
Apply your tinted epoxy to your countertop by pouring directly on to your project out of the mixing cup. Overlap and layer the epoxy as desired. Pour out of a bucket, cup, or use a stick to achieve desired look.
Step #4: Enhancing the Natural Look
Identify areas that can be improved by making it look more natural and use a gloved hand to meld the epoxy better. Use a torch or heat gun after to promote more movement after touching up a specific spot.
Step #5: "Granify" your Epoxy
Use black spray paint to mist areas in which you would like to add celling to your project. Using a solution of 91% Isopropyl alcohol squirt the solution over the spray painted area and celling will appear.
Step #6: Meld Epoxy
Use a heat gun or torch to meld the tinted epoxy together on the surface of your project. Do this to achieve a more natural look. Keep from over melding and mixing on the surface. The different additives will work their magic on your project leaving realistic features found in mother nature.
