  • Bar surface?

    Have you ever been in a bar that had bar with baseball cards or newspaper clippings under a thick shelac or poly coating? I am wondering how to do
    that for a project at home? do i just do a lot of coats? and what would be the best product to us?

    Sorry for all the questions

    Thanks

      "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
      John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

        That's the stuff! It depends on how much you have to cover as to how much you get. You can't pour some then mix and pour some more, you pretty much have to do it all in one shot. You can pour one layer and let it sit, then pour a second and so on. You make a kind of dam around the project like you would for pouring concrete. Let it sit for a little longer than is recommended on the mix. And make sure you put some release agent on your forms. You can cover your forms with the smooth packing tape, but make sure there's no seams or anything.

        You can also take pictures of the process and share them!!
        I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.
