5. When you feeling confident about creating your own surface, start preparing your surface - please keep you home at even temperature of 18 to 22  degrees Celsius for the duration of 6 hours prior to beginning and 48 hours after completion of the pour. 
You home should be dust free and no any air movement, such as heat pumps, fans or drafts are allowed. You also should avoid any spraying during this time (air deodorisers, insect control, etc).

6. Make sure you protect all your surfaces (floors, cabinets and walls), that could get in contact with liquid stone product.

7. Depending on the size of the project, you could be working on your project 1 to 2 days on average. If projects are very large, it could take a little bit longer. 

8. Prepare your surface according to our recommendation (for advice please contact us via phone or email).

9.After your painted surface aired out for 24 hours, mix your art coat epoxy and hardener and start your first, art coat pour. 

10. Let your first coat dry, give it a light sand, if required, approximately 24 hours after first poor.

11. When you are happy with your art coat results, mix your top coat epoxy and hardener, and pour it in a similar manner to the art coat.  Make sure there is no bubbles or impurities in the final finish.

CREE8IVE SURFACES RECOVERING YOUR SURFACE:

1. Cree8ive Surfaces will visit your property for a quote and measure. We will bring samples and colours available for you to have some idea on what you would like your countertop or furniture to look like. You can prepare some photos/colour maps of your own so we can get a feel on what is the best suited option for your home. Or you can just choose from our styles.
2. We will create a sample and bring it to you within 7 days of the first visit. If any adjustments have to be made, we will discuss it and change your sample. When your sample reflecting what you would like to see on your surface, we will ask you to sign its back. You can also choose high gloss or satin finish.
Please note, liquid stone surfaces are an art form, with your being a mind of an artist, and we are the hands. We do our absolutely best to create your vision with a goal of you being excited and satisfied with the end result. Every piece is unique and one of a kind, can not be replicated and might look slightly different from your sample - that’s what makes it awesome, just like granite, marble, quarts and other natural material.
