|Hard at work, laying out designs and mixing concrete|
Couldn't have asked for nicer weather - in fact the sun was so bright we ended up having to pull the curtains for much of the evening until it set.

And I hope everyone is pleased - often, they have a bit of an ugly duckling look about them until we've had a chance to brush them up with a little sand paper and add a touch of acrylics or resin to help bring out the design.
And that's what this Thursday evening is all about - and playing with resin as well.

We'll work with the epoxy resin both in conjunction with the concrete and on its own. I plan to spend some time this evening drawing little designs that might get used in the resin.

I haven't worked with resin but it does look like it has tons of possibilities!ReplyDelete
