Metallic Epoxy Archives

Decorative Concrete Metallic Epoxy Sample Boards Base Coat

Hey guys, it’s right here today. What I’m gonna do is just put a black base coat on these boards. These are three simple words. I’m, getting ready to do for clients. I just said: go ahead and pour this, so this is our black base.

Normally, we always use this for our base. Go to our floors too, so that’s. What I’m gonna use on boards, so I’m gonna go ahead and premix our part, a I’ve got it over here, makes our part be up. Then I’m gonna mix.

The two together, along with the metallics and we’re, going to spread this on with a squeegee. We’re gonna be using about nine ounces, because I got about hardly nothing here. So nine ounces should cover this, probably a little bit more than what we need but use you, okay.

What I’ve done is I’ve, just mixed a part, A Part B at a two-to-one ratio. My metallics are in there and I mixed it for three minutes. So now I’m gonna go ahead and pour it out as equal as I can spread it around with our squeegee and then use a chip brush around the edges.

That’s. Basically it for today that’ll, be our base coat. We’ll, let it sit and we’ll come back tomorrow, you, okay, guys. The base goes on not much more. We can do. We’ll, just kind of let this move around a little bit and do its thing.

It won’t move a whole lot because put it on fairly thin. Put it a little bit thicker, but it’s, not super thin, so a little bit of movement. But finally, it’s on we’re gonna. Let it sit dry overnight and I’ll be back.

Harley Davidson BAR and Shield Diamond Plate EPOXY COUNTERTOP | Lake Ozark MO

 

Not much to say about this one, it’s a Harley Davidson Bar and Shield metal cutout.

I started with a regular 1 inch MDF board countertop, bought some 1.5 inch trim for it, cut that trim to fit, painted it matte black and used my trim gun to attach the trim around the perimeter.

Went to a Local steel company to have a piece of diamond plate cut to fit the board, once I got it back to my shop I just used liquid nail to glue the diamond plate to the top of the countertop, then did the same with the metal Harley Davidson bar and shield.

Then I mixed up some 2 part commercial grade epoxy added in a very small amount of Gun Metal Metallic Powder, and a pinch of Blue Jean Metallic power, mixed that for a few min, made a tape wall around the perimeter of the countertop and repeated that for a second round of tape just to secure the epoxy so it would not leak out, once that was all done I just poured it all out on the countertop, moved it around where I needed it and it made a 1/4 inch thick layer of Epoxy so it went over the diamond plate and the Harley Davidson bar and shield that was glued onto it.

I also used a Heat Gun to pop the bubbles of the Epoxy added a few subtle flames to the top of the bar and shield and sprayed some black spray paint over the epoxy to dirty it up some, then used isopropyl 91% alcohol spritzed on with a small hand sprayer with a trigger, that helped the products to blend together creating some nice cells and spider veins.

When it was all done I let it settled and move and in the end we got exactly what I was going for a slightly smoked dirty gun metal blue steel look overall I would say it was a success, do you agree???….. let me know in the comments here on the site or on the video over on my YouTube channel.

Hope you Enjoy the pictures and Video

Decorative Concrete Acid Stained Coating on a Basement Floor w/Epoxy Seal Coat | Lake Ozark MO

Okay so, this week we went to Osage Beach Missouri for our next project we had no idea what the floor condition was other than the age of the floor the reason being it had carpet installed when they built the home, but what we did know about this floor is anytime it has carpet it’s gonna have glue and tack strips with that being said this floor had both so I knew we would have some glue to remove and tack strip holes to repair and of course concrete does crack so there were a few those as well.

We went in we pulled all the carpet, all the tack strips, and discovered several cracks, so we opened up the cracks to repair them and did the same with the tack strip holes once all the repairs were done we just basically ground everything down flush with the concrete all of our repairs that is and removed the carpet glue now we have a fresh surface or clean canvas to work from.

Click HERE to see the Full Album from start to finish… 

Watch the video below and you’ll see almost everything we did to that floor, so the next steps were to start our base coat which on this floor we just started with two white base coats no color 100% coverage, after that our next step was to add our texture which is a Tuscan Slate this takes a lot more time and a lot more skill, but it’s easy once you understand how to do it… This coat goes down at about 85% coverage.

So after the textures down we want to add are ACID STAINS, but obviously first we have to prep everything off with paper because we do spray our acid stains, this floor is getting two colors one is an Umber color and the other is a Brown Acid Stain, most of the time I never get this the first time, usually it takes 2 to 3 coats of acid stain per color to get the right marbling and correct shade I’m looking for.

Now that the Acid Stains are down we just gotta let it do its thing and come back later and scrub it all up and rinse it with ammonia and water shop vac it and let it sit at least 24 hours before we come back and put our CLEAR EPOXY over the top, next we put a UV protection coat over the top of the clear epoxy and this project is complete!!

Hope you Enjoy the pictures and Video

Knockdown Texture Upper Deck Condo | Lake of the Ozarks, MO

This week we’re at a condo complex in Greenview Missouri, this is an upper suspended deck with a gorgeous view, the homeowner wanted to do a solid seamless knockdown finish in a chocolate color.

We begin our work morning like we do most every job we grind the surface with our walk behind and hand grinders open up any cracks and repair, and then grind the repairs flush. Once the surface has been thoroughly profiled we get it all cleaned up and ready for concrete.IMAG3685

The next step of the process is to lay out a base coat of colored concrete once that’s down we add a second coat, that’s pretty much all we did the first two days.

Our third day we came in and prepped all of the walls, glass, and railing… Set up our mixing station and sprayed our concrete with our hopper gun, then knocked it down with our trowel…. Simple process.

Today we came back pulled down all the paper knocked down all the concrete burrs, cleaned it up real well and put on two coats of our premium sealer.

Overall this is a very simple process and does not take us very long.

Hope you Enjoy the pictures and Video
