Jaded Copper Twin Sinks Project

Our customer Trevor was looking for a nice bench top for a long time to enable him to create this incredible Jaded Copper Twin Sinks Project.

He was looking for an alternative material to granite or marble, but wanted to avoid the weight and cost these materials would bring.

As Trevor was researching alternative ideas, he thought about copper plating a plywood board and then discovered a link to the GlassCast Jaded Copper Countertop project.

This looked like the sort of result Trevor was trying to achieve and he would be able to adapt the process and technique to achieve a similar result for his project so he cut out a 28mm plywood board, sealed the underside and used GlassCast 3 and Culr pigments applied to the top surface and edges.

Thank you for sharing your project - it's stunning and definitely ticks the box for the luxury look without the price tag!

ABOUT TREVOR

Our customer Trevor produced this one off Twin Sinks project for his own home after watching the GlassCast Resin Jaded Copper Countertop Tutorial and adapting the process and technique to suit his requirements.

We look forward to seeing your future projects!

I have a bathroom sink counter combo that is an ugly old white. I am wondering if I can put the resin on top of that if I sand it? If so I also was also wondering how durable it might be to curling irons and hair color?

Good questions! If it's a fully integrated sink and counter (i.e. they're all one thing) then it would depend on what material that unit is made from. If it's a moulded plastic unit then it's possible that the resin would struggle to bond properly to it, even with a very good key. On the other hand, if it's acrylic, or better still a 'filled' acrylic (which some are) then the resin could bond very well. Without knowing what it's made from, you might need to conduct a small test first to check that it bonds properly.

The next thing to check is whether you plan on applying the resin all over the inside surface of the sink? If you did, I've certainly recommend against this because you'll just find it all running down and pooling at the bottom of the sink, which is not what you want at all. However, if you're just running it to the edge of the sink 'bowl' then that should be fine.

Finally, as for hot hair tongues and hair colour, you'd definitely want to use a heat mat under the tongues, these get pretty hot and would be likely to cause at least some sort of a mark. Hair colour would probably be OK, resin has good stain and chemical resistance, although - clearly - common sense says minimise the risk with some sensible precautions as much as you can.
