New project will become a resin wall hanging

Recommended Posts

In  the last few months I  hAve been tatting with epoxy resin . I  get cable reel tops from work and fill the holes and put resin on them this is an on going project and takes roughly 3 to 4 weeks to complete . This latest one is 11 1/2 diameter  x 3/4 inch deep. I have filled small holes with wood filler and wedged a milk bottle lid in the centre hole which I will fill with resin tomorrow then when it's dry I will cover it in wood filler.  Sand it really fill where it needs it before priming it then do my resin work 

The bottom  pic is an 18 inch round I have made for my parents 54th wedding anniversary  . It's fast becoming a passion.  Thanks for looking

Very nice Kay, like that I have a mate who does all sorts of weird and wonderful stuff with epoxy resin including a coffee table covered in Penny's which looked amazing so we are now without a coffee table in the house as I'm prepping it to try and do the same👍

I  am hoping to  resin 2 of the big cable reel tops together  as there not very thick and put hair pin legs on it . Have you seen the beer bottle top tables as well they look brilliant . This resin stuff is so versatile ain't it. Will you stick a pic of your table on when you have done it 👍

Hi Kay how have you obtained the finished (marbling) effect you have?

I  use a heat gun on the low setting  and then switch to a hairdryer to move the resin I also use a drinking straw to move small areas

Not ceramic Kay just MDF painted white to seal then mixes resin with colour an adds a couple of drops of silicone to get the colours to separate give it a go 👍

Nice stuff. I’ve always fancied having a go at making something with resin. Maybe a bit gimmicky but the turned bowls using coloured pencils look smart. I like this guy’s guitar too.
