Prepare 4 separate disposable plates, then in each one put white, black, and gray, then a mixture of all three in the 4th plate. Using a sponge, dab each color of paint into the surface of the table making sure to blend out the colors. Leave them to dry out completely before brushing the top with clear glossy paint for the finishing touch.


Step 2

Prepare some plastic cups, then fill them with a few drops of paint making sure to put different color in each cups. Pour clear resin in each cup, then mix them until well combined and uniform. In the white resin cup, pour one color on top, followed by another until you’ve poured all colors on top. Without mixing, pour this on top of the table, then tilt it around until it is well coated. Pour some gray resin to create random swirls and streaks, then use a blow torch and hover it on top of the table, and then let it dry completely.
