Well if you painted the table top I’d say you do have it mastered. In any case great job. Did you just spray on latex? I use a vinyl undercoat with a conversion varnish final coat. I’m quite happy with it.

Dennis is right. That’s a fantastic faux-stone finish. :-)
I love the table.

Kev, I think you can stop: ”... trying to master paint finishes.” I’d say you have already done it. Look awesome.
