I found using a heat gun on the sink form worked excellently to form it into the 90 degree corners of our sinks. I wet polished from 100 grit up to 1500 and it has a super smooth shiny finish that we love."

Epoxy Countertops

1st Place - Angie Seymour

Prize: $250 Home Depot Gift Card

Customer Comment: "While using a concrete counter with the decorator edges we created a one of a kind designer kitchen with green epoxy counters that create a bright and elegant look while the feeling is bright and happy!"

2nd Place - Emily Marshall

Prize: $200 Store Credit

Customer Comment: "Finishing these countertops with epoxy was a great choice for our space. We wanted to keep the color of raw concrete but add design. We mixed a dye in with the base layer of epoxy, but used spray paint to achieve the rest of the design. Having the epoxy finish also makes the Countertops non porous and much more family friendly!"

3rd Place - Joe Chapman

Prize: $100 Store Credit

Customer Comment: "Forms were used to make an inlay for the chess board. after the concrete set up the inlay forms were removed, concrete was stained and chess board was dropped in. Concrete was stained with z aqua tint, clear diamondcoat epoxt was poured and then colors were mixed in, this allows the stained concrete to be seen through and a 3d effect with the colors resting at different depths in the clear epoxy. This is my favorite counter."

Prize: $100 Store Credit

Customer Comment: "I used the z liquid Crete system in our concrete mix for these counter tops. I used fiber glass to reinforce the concrete. I used your wet polisher and pads to hone the concrete. We did not use stains, we left it the natural colors of the cement. I sealed the counters with your z SiAcyrlic 14 sealer and the Z counter shine polish. This was our third project using your products. We installed these counters two years ago. The picture is from today. You can see how well they’ve held up. We have loved them!"
