(upbeat music) – I'm turning these additives, you can get at the Stone
Coat Epoxy Color Center, into a contrasting countertop that you can pour right
over your existing surfaces. I'm gonna try out the heat gun. I'm gonna mix and meld
a little of these colors over one another using the heat. Pretty. Yeah. So when you blow the color over one, spin around and blow it back, oh, it's pretty. They meld wonderfully. Oh, yeah. That's what I'm talking about. Don't break the bank with
those high-end countertops you can't even install yourself.

Use Stone Coat Epoxy and save thousands over
other countertop options. This recipe is quick and easy, stay tuned and enjoy the video. ♪ Oh, you got this ♪ Today, we're going over a piece of wood that I've applied a drop edge to. I took a metal fiber sanding
disc, and contoured my project to look like a piece of chiseled stone. To give it that high definition rock look, I used a little bit of Bondo, mixed it up, and applied that with a glove hand. I let the Bondo dry and
sanded away any sharp edges. I then mixed a little bit of white and a little bit of black
of our epoxy undercoat to create a gray undercoat. If you'd like to coat over
your existing countertop and save the time and money on demo, there's a link right above me that's gonna take you to the video that teaches you step-by-step how to properly prep your
smooth surface for epoxy.

I'm now gonna create a tape
dam around the perimeter of my project using masking tape. This is an optional step. And if you're on site, all you'll need to do is tape the front and sides of your countertops. I turned this online marketplace table into an epoxy treasure
on one of our videos. I'm giving it away to

is a one-to-one ratio epoxy. You mix for two minutes, pour in part B first followed by part A, mix for two minutes with
a paddle mixer on a drill, holding that bucket to
keep it from spinning. Midway through mixing,
slow the paddle mixer down, rub the sides and bottom to incorporate any
under mix epoxy clinging to the sides of that bucket, and then pick it back up to full speed.

I'm gonna make quick workout
of mixing these metallics into our exotic pour bucket, by first mixing them into
our Epoxy Dispersion Fluid. The Dispersion Fluid can
add some really cool effects inside those exotic pours, or whatever epoxy project
you're working on. Titanium, this color is legendary. We're gonna divide that mixed epoxy into separate mixing cups,
and then tint it individually. Take each metallic color
that you've premixed in Dispersion Fluid and mix
it right into your epoxy. Makes for simple mixing. Stone Coat's metallic powder epoxy colors look great in epoxy countertops, floors, and will make any epoxy
woodworking project pop. Check out the video description below to see a detailed list of all the additives used in this video. All of Stone Coat's metallic powders can be found at our Epoxy Color Center. These metallic powders are very vivid, extremely color fast,
and specifically designed and engineered for use in epoxy. So my main bucket's gonna be
an earth tone exotic pour, and my little bucket will be
a white marble exotic pour.

I'm gonna combine the two on one project and see what it gives me. And then start building
that exotic pour bucket just by randomly pouring
in the tinted epoxy. (Mitch whispers) And a wee bit of diamond dust, cause that always takes the
project to another level. This part is simple and super fun. Just don't take a stick and
stir that exotic pour bucket. The epoxy additives will
continue to fight one another as you add layers, giving you a realistic looking countertop. Now I'm gonna build my
little white bucket. Same process here, just using the white tinted epoxy with a dash of blue earth. My exotic pour buckets are built. They're very easy to do,
that was a lot of fun. Now I'm gonna apply this epoxy
right out of this bucket, and I'm gonna kind of go
in a striated stone look. You could go any way you wish,
you could do a ring pour, you could go front to back,
diagonal, whatever you wish.

I'm gonna go side to side My earth tone is down. I'm gonna let that self level, and I'm gonna apply a
little bit of my white, right in between these two. I added my remaining metallic colors for one more layer of contrast. I'm gonna remove some of
the air I incorporated while mixing and stirring all
that epoxy with some heat. I like to use a propane torch, but you can also use a
heat gun, or a blow dryer. Hold the torch at an inch
or so from the surface in a sweeping motion,
torch the entire project.

I'm gonna try out the heat gun. I'm gonna mix and meld
a little of these colors over one another using the heat. Pretty. Yeah. So, when you blow the color over one, spin around and blow it back, oh, it's pretty. They meld wonderfully. Oh, yeah. That's what I'm talking about. Those two colors look sweet together. Once I started using that heat gun, I took the brown and
blew it over the white, and then I would take the white
and blow it over the brown, and those colors that mixed
together look fantastic. It looks like mother
nature made this piece. That heat gun is a tool
you want in your toolbox. I'm gonna let it sit for about an hour, come back, and peel that tape.

The epoxy's been sitting
for about an hour and a half since I last left it. So I'm just gonna peel
this tape and peel away and down from that project. Yeah, that epoxy is nice and thick. Simple process, just pull down
and away from the project. Then come back through
with your gloved hand, and break up any stringy
epoxy clinging to the bottom. Man, that's gonna look good. Peeling the tape on an
exotic pour is really easy. I really, really like how
this project turned out.

It looks fantastic with that subtle blue that's melded over that earth tone brown. We have hundreds of epoxy additives over at the Epoxy Color Center. To make this recipe your own, and get it to fit in your space, just mix up some of those
metallic colors and epoxy dyes. They all fight each other
to make some really amazing, simple countertop. Ooh, that is looking pretty. Thanks for watching everybody,

you on the next video.
