    Hello Capt. Bruce, glad you like the project. I was amazed to see the gentlemen use the carving as a way to propose marriage and happy I was able to assist in his proposal. He actually wanted to drive from Tallahassee to Tampa to pick it up.

    Thanks for your reply, the ptn image looks good. I usually only gimp to remove the background if it's very busy. Otherwise I just use the photo as is.

    Thanks for the reply. Hopefully I can get more machine time to continue the process.

ID:	61641 Easybuilt, have you thought about using the texture feature as part of a portrait offer. Here's one that incorporates the names, horizontal texture an oval carving region topped off with a photo from the 60's. Here's the actual photo's used to produce the attached carving.

    Thank you, it's a fairly simple process to pour the polymer. I've found it to be a great way to add alittle pazzaz to a project and a bit more profit.

    So about how much did it take to cover that area? Do you just mix it and pour it on?

    It took about 8 - 10 oz. to cover the area. This product can be purchased at home depot, Parks, Super Glaze, it's an epoxy two part mix. While it is a simple process it's also a risky process and here's why. You have a completed project ready to ship now you decide to pour the epoxy on the project. Any mistake and you may have to start over. Just be careful and take your time.
