Looks good. Did you put any type of finish over the photos?

Eagle, both plaques look great. Have to ask the same question though, how do you mount the photos? My best friend is getting married this year and this might make a great gift idea.

This is a very interesting project and I am sure it makes a great gift.
How are you gluing the photos to the plaque?

This is one step from complete, the finish will be a 2 part epoxy/resin mix that is poured on and is self leveling, as long as it is placed on a level surface.If you look at PLAQUE 2 you will see the finish. (I’ve been told it is the equivalent of 20 coats of poly.)

after many trials my preference is elmers white glue, seems to work good with the paper.when you do it put the glue on the photo,then put apiece of scrap laminated wood (like the piece of coutertop that is removed to make room for the sink) the elmers does not stick to the laminate so any squeze out of glue should not be an issue.

Very nice. I am guessing the Elmer’s will hold up for a long time, too.
