Norglass Liquid Glass

Make a Decorative River Table
With Norglass Liquid Glass


Have you ever pictured a gorgeous river wood table in your living room? What a great attention getting one would make. Whilst this is a multi-day process at the end of the day the result will be a high gloss and UV resistant custom table - well worth the time and effort to make yourself a masterpiece that everyone will admire.

RiverTable_LiqGlass1

It all starts with a piece of reclaimed timber such as cedar or whatever else takes your fantasy and is a suitable length. Cut the time in half lengthways to create two pieces which are an even thickness. Use a belt sander to clear all dirt and imperfections such as bark from both pieces.
On a suitable flat surface build a container, or mold, to house the tabletop while the liquid resin dries. Start by cutting a piece of melamine to the desired dimensions of the table top. Using additional pieces of melamine, cut walls for the mold which will be tall enough to house the panels of reclaimed cedar, and any minor overflow of resin.
Place the two pieces of timber into the mould with the straight edges to the outside, leaving a gap in the middle of the pieces to make the river of epoxy.
To prepare and pour Norglass Liquid Glass sit with a coffee and have a good look at the detailed video mentioned below. Even watching a couple of sessions of the video whilst having a cup of coffee will make the job easier.

A Bit about Paints

A coat of paint can really transform the look of any room, floor, doors or deck, and it doest cost you a small fortune to get a new look from some ageing items in your home. But when you see paint on the market ranging from $8 a litre all the way to $20 or more, it starts to raise questions. Are those more expensive paints REALLY worth the money?

One factor that you need to consider, is the type of paint. Oil based paint or water based latex. Oil paints are great for durability and provide a really smooth coat. But they are also a lot harder to clean up. water based latex on the other hand has come a long way with the improved chemistry behind them, and can be cleaned with water. 

Another deciding factor in the higher grade, higher priced paints, is application. The higher grade paints contain a titanium in the mix, which gives the paint more coverage and a smoother finish. So it does a better job at covering up those small imperfections that come with time. With a lower grade paint, you may need 3-4 and sometimes even 5 coats to get the same effect as you would with the more expensive paint. 

When applied by paintbrush, cheaper paints show brush marks and provide poor coverage due to the thin layers they create. Higher-quality paints provide smooth, one-coat coverage. This will save you a lot of time, and also mean less usage. You may only need 4 litres of a high quality paint, as compared to 12-16 litres of the lower grade to cover the same area with multiple coats. 

Another big difference is in durability. The more expensive paints are also more washable and offer greater scrub resistance. If you try washing dirt off a cheaper paint, you're likely to wash off some of the paint itself. And no one wants to see that 1970’s green showing up on your newly refreshed wall do they? When choosing paint colours, pick a paint chip that appeals to you, and match it to the store's fan deck; the colours are listed alphabetically and numerically. Next, check the light reflective value (LRV) of the paint. This is a scientific measurement of how dark or light the paint will be once it's on your walls.
As a general rule, interior paints should have an LRV of 50 percent or more. Keep in mind that the colour will appear more vibrant when you apply it to the walls.

Preparation is KEY

A successful paint job starts with properly preparing the surface you're going to paint. That means you must scrape, sand, patch, and fill every hole, crack, dent, and surface imperfection.

This isn't the fun part of painting a room, but it is the most important part. No paint, regardless of its cost, colour, thickness, or manufacturer's claims, will hide a pockmarked or cracked surface.

If the preparation is done correctly then the painting is easier and a good look is ensured.
