Lets look at what I was working with…
I had oval sinks and wanted to change over to square. For a long time I thought I had to rebuild the countertop (because the hole is too big) to make the new sinks fit. I finally just took the sink out the box and dropped it in the hole to see and whahlah, it fit! Yaaay.
I took off the sinks. Easy enough following youtube. I went to my stash of sample paints that match my wallpaper.
I gathered all my sample house paints and picked my colors. I mixed half paint to half floetrol and poured all the colors in a container. I just poured each color in WITHOUT mixing them.
Next i poured it all on the counter. It wasnt thinned out enough so it wasn’t moving. Yikes.
I got out my blow dryer put it on cool and high and went to town moving the paint around with the cool air. This was really fun to do watching the effects I was making.
Day 2 and its still pretty wet. I have a fan on it to help it dry. Its looking more like stone. Its going to take a few days for it to dry then I have to seal it.
It took a total of 3 days to dry. The paint cracked here and there which made it really look like stone.
After it dried completly I sealed it with 3 coats of matte polycrilic. I used the counter but didnt leave anything in it for a week, letting everything cure.
I am really feeling it but whats you take in it?
Did I make a Mess or a masterpiece or something in between? Be honest…
