That is awesome!  I love it!   Grin  I vote for resin, otherwise it might get ruined.

i love it!! very meditarrean vibe  Wink

i suggest you do a little test sample with resin and the other stuff, so it would be easier to decide which one to use in the end!

and show us the result!!!  Smiley

Shocked Wow! Gorgeous and inspiring!

Could you use both grout and resin?  Not that you need to, but if someone wanted the look of white grout without the hassle of its getting dirty and such, could you grout out the mosaic, let it dry, and then resin over the top?  Or would there be a chemical/structural/whatever problem?

mariska and PimpernelSmith- I have started to resin a few little things and trying it over the grout with glass pieces instead of marbles though, just to get the feel of it and how it would look over grout, and what I have done  looks great on these little boxes I am doing,  but I did want to know the best method before I tackled such a big job and then theres no going back. I am finding that the resin says its not for outdoor use and I want to leave my table outside, so what should I do? I definitely plan on putting up a pic when I am done....if it comes out okay....lol Tongue

I painted the top of the table white first then I glued each flat marble on with Elmer's craft glue one by one by one by one ....tedious to say the least. You can borrow anything you like- thats what this place is all about!  THANKS!

It's so pretty and vibrant, I would worry a bit that resin would cloud up and take out some of the lustre. How about just covering it with a glass top?

Whatever you choose, it's going to be beautiful!

Ah, now a glass top is a great idea!
