After I finish the Leviathan I will start working on the Sea Gulls. However, before I can do that I needed to get the water around the “Land of Celestial Thoughts” inlaid first as one of the wings of one of the Sea Gulls will overlap that land.
I am using Inlace Granules. (Turquoise and White)
I poured the Turquoise first and then followed it with the white to simulate the waves braking as they roll in towards the land.
I had to put plugs into the grout expansion lines to keep the inlay from spilling out! I then poured Mirror Coat on top of the granules to seal them in. Mirror Coat is an epoxy finish that is commonly used on bar tops and tables. It dries perfectly clear. It is an amazing product!
I will have to sand the final surface with a high count paper, around 2000 grit, to get the clear to return after the floor is sanded to its final surface, but it will be worth all the work. I will do this to all the lands and islands, but I am going to add a few more colors to add depth I think.
Much more to follow….
