Just gotta watch pouring to much epoxy in one pour, the heat might melt the corafoam. A few epoxy manufacturers say to only do 1/4 inch depth at at time. Do the letters first, let it cure and then do the clear over the whole tabletop. That famoglaze (I think that’s the name) is great for the bar top stuff and it’s significantly cheaper then trying to do it with West System. The torch technique should work fine, if you use my denatured alcohol technique you’ll run into the issue of getting a “mirage” effect in the clear.

Thanks, everyone.
I'll be using E-28 .... not sure who makes it but it's from Tom's Cypress in Waldo FL. I've had trouble with this stuff before, but the girl at Tom's told me that it was too cold in my shop ( I was doing it in the winter) & it needed to be over 80*. Well, that shouldn't be a problem today or tomorrow ..... forecast is for 100* today ( 38*C)

TR...
Now you get to find out the difference between "looks pretty level" and "level"

Gary, do you mean I can't pour this if it's hanging on the wall from a PanelClip?

Mike, I have about 15 jobs on the go. Potentially sold a month's worth of dimensional yesterday, so I didn't even get the tabletop painted, let alone the first coat of epoxy on.

Check into casting resin, never used it but I have seen it recommended many times for thick pours.

TR if you used the torch on any of the part and you plan on re coating that part you must rough it up or the new pour won't stick it will peal off.
I thought I posted the picture of the twisted pedestal table with the painted 3d rose in the middle then that was filled with epoxy that's about 1/2 inch thick.
