Wow. That's a brilliant idea. From a distance it looks like it could be mozaic or even a funky fake marble, and up close it's really interesting. I absolutely love the greens you chose too - calming and fresh. I want one now too!

Hello,

This message is for you experienced resin casters.

I have a pass-through from my kitchen to my dining room. The "ledge" for want of a better word is about 6 feet long and 14 inches wide. It has a cast resin surface approximately 1 1/2 inches deep. It depicts the ocean floor complete with sand, shells, sand dollars, star fish and many other items.

Over the years, the surface has become scratched from plates and other things being placed on it. The scratches are not deep, but they detract from the beauty of it.

It is time I found a way to restore the "gloss" finish to what it looked like when it was made. It was made in place.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I should do this? I am an accomplished diy person.

Thanks in advance for any help and advice.

Haha I have this strong desire to touch it! The resin must have been extremely expensive, and drying time must have been 1-2 days for each layer. too much work for me lol Roll Eyes

I want to do this so bad, but with pins. Thing is, I don't know where I would put it since I have a very small room. Sad
