Step-by-Step Lava Epoxy Tutorial
Mix your chosen pigment powders with Countertop Epoxy. We used Dark Red Metallic, Yellow Pearl Metallic, Gold Metallic, Copper Metallic and Black Liquid Dye.
Pour the first layer of Yellow Pearl pigmented epoxy resin onto your surface.
Distribute the epoxy resin as desired, across the surface.
Pour the second layer of pigmented epoxy resin (Dark Red Metallic) onto the surface. Keeping in mind how you want the final design to look.
Sparingly add the third layer of pigmented epoxy resin (Gold Metallic) and blend together.
Spray the epoxy resin surface with Isopropyl Alcohol. This helps get rid of any trapped air bubbles.
Begin adding the Black Liquid Dye to the epoxy resin.
Add some Copper Metallic pigmented epoxy resin.
Apply a clear coat of Countertop Epoxy.
Spray with Isopropyl Alcohol to help get rid of the remaining air bubbles.
