How to Get a Matt or Satin Finish on Epoxy Countertops

Introduction

The step-by-step instructions described here, and shown in the accompanying video tutorial, cover all the general information needed to produce alternative finishes to your resin countertop.

To demonstrate how to achieve a stylish matt or subtle satin finish we use the white marble style countertop we created in our Complete Epoxy Resin Countertop Tutorial.

Please note: the natural surface finish when using GlassCast 3 resin is the super glossy, glass like finish.


Matt Finish

To achieve a stylish matt finish on your countertop or other resin surface simply follow these simple steps:

  1. Abrade the surface using 1500 grit abrasive paper
  2. If you have access to a DA Sander this will make the process much faster although you can do it by hand
  3. Keep the DA Sander moving, applying only light pressure
  4. Clean and wipe the surface and inspect to make sure the shine has been completely removed
  5. Take care on rolled edges t avoid breaking through the surface

You will now have a contemporary matt finish on your countertop or other project!

Satin Finish

Alternatively to achieve a subtle satin finish on your countertop or other resin surface simply follow these simple steps:

  1. Follow the steps to achieve a matt finish in the steps above
  2. Apply a small amount of polishing compound to the surface
  3. Work the compound into the worktop in a circular motion
  4. Don't over work the compound, this will avoid bringing the surface to a high shine, then wipe away excess polishing compound

You will now have a stunning satin finish surface on your countertop or other project!
