hey guys welcome back to lagari products we have another really cool video for you today we really hope you enjoy it we work hard on these videos we try to show you as much information as we can without being boring enjoy we're back to the guard guys are going to be doing another counter coding super cool project here they've built these counters out of wood it did plywood on the top they did a trim board edge so we got about an inch and a half edge they did all these in here they've already cut out their sink and as you can see we did plastic it all up they pretty much got this ready for us so we can just show up and start coding they've filled all their seams they caught the back edge here and they're doing stuff subway tiles up so really we're not really worried about tape in the back here we're gonna do the primer now and get ready to do some

epoxy

on it make them look like some kind of awesome look a marvel granite who knows what we're gonna do right now we don't even know I would say guys roll down the middle and then cross roll back just a lot easier to spread it out then getting there doing subway-tile so we're not worried about getting some stuff on the wall there these nail holes they need to be filled okay Savvis always make sure you know these nail holes especially in the front edge we're gonna have to fill those with something for we coat it you definitely do not want nail holes in our front edges our something's...

gonna cross roll my bead we put it right down the middle again don't run over the edges to sell I recommend if this is your first time doing our kiss to Roy basically like this you get a little more experience you can kind of use your roller as a squeegee start spreading it around cover a lot more ground like this the reason we're not running off the edge is it's so fluid right now it'll just just run off and drip on the floor and you kind of want to get it all rolled out before we do that again we're doing subway tiles so the back doesn't doesn't really matter if we get it on there good even coat or the other spots so we've got a little much on here I'm gonna grab the bucket I can just tell that's already thicker than the counter out there that we just did so I want to take a little hop of here and I'll add some out to the end of the counter I don't want to get them all the same thickness or close to that where our designs are going to be the same tend to see how forgiving it is putting lading this stuff out if you got it to take somewhere a little bit of that in the bucket you got a dead spot somewhere go get some from another spot to put in the bucket poured out the dead spots I'm gonna go dump this out out here so there's no bubbles perfectly smooth as glass vinyl if I'll roll over everything real quick start bringing it right to the edge are sold we do it now it's gonna get my edges I got all this she'll...

roll it on the top running on her edge on this as you can choose material kind of run a beat right on this edge pull it back just a little I don't make sure got a lot of material that can possibly be pour over that edge as I'm doing my highlights we swirl the agitate any bubbles that might be under the surface there's I'm glad we got it do the same thing here a little bit material to my edge push it backwards then all that will flow over notice how kind of careless I'm doing this you don't have to be gentle you're not gonna hurt it I'm gonna do I'll do these edges last a more finished I don't want to get a bunch of like duster didn't bring on my roller so I'll do those at the very end and on your

silver

highlights so we're gonna do we're gonna do our

vein

technique

super

simple

that's what they wanted but I'm going to do bigger

vein

s this time so I'm gonna get my design kind of by doing just just like you normally would kind of just throwing these out there on my edges and a lot of cover there don't want the color to flow over this is really good all I'm doing is kind of getting our designers and I'm gonna go back and add add a bunch of color to it but like I say in all the videos if you don't have any material for that to flow over cuz this will continue to flow over till it gets hard you'll just have

black

there so as long as we add extra material here that can continuously be flowing...

over and they're just gonna pull that

silver

with it next little little trick that works amazing and even spots where you don't have a

vein

you just add a little color she get up to your back walls want to look like it goes under under the water all around we get comments all the time why don't you leave it yeah this looks cool but some what they want we will totally do a video for you guys where we leave it did you get asked that all the time they want us to pour this stuff out and just leave it but again this is for customer it's kind of a charity deal we're not charging for this we're kind of just doing this to help them out remodel their house notice how we did wait we did the base coat then we immediately added the highlight coat you don't want to wait in between you wanna do your base coat get it rolled out and then add the highlights right after and then we're gonna go right into swirling it and blending the colors yeah it looks pretty pretty stinking cool just so I'm gonna do there's two different ways you can do the

vein

s you can kind of roll with your

vein

right wrong with all the

vein

s and then swirl in between I'm just going to do the

simple

st part just going to swirl the whole counter do my edges as I go along go swirl a little bit on the top and then do your edges it doesn't take much the more you swirl it the more it's gonna be one color and it looks like the color kind of disappeared but it's gonna come...
back to see a lot more

silver

one system starts marbleizing trying to do the same thing on all your counters you don't want to know wait go take a smoke break or take a phone call and try to come back and hope everything matches just just kind of don't stop once you start and they look it look identical I'll see you on that make sure you go all different directions you want to keep swirling the same pattern over and over then get one coming out different there you just want to be random with it notice I'm going fast you don't have to go fast but just just showed you you don't have to be you know delicate with it you're not gonna hurt it so we're not gonna test the top seam or I'm gonna roll these edges on the way you can start flowing over and then now we just kind of wait you can already see it's already happening in his and heads like

silver

is already starting to flow over that edge that's what it's all gonna start doing everywhere so we'll come to show you guys how this looks at about by 10-15 minutes to see how these edges will start looking on I hope you spent about a half an hour 45 minutes our edges you look ok but I want to add a little bit more

silver

here and there so I'm just gonna take my paintbrush I've already dipped in the

black

and we've kind of hit the other edges but now I'm gonna get some of my

silver

out of the bottom of the container here and it doesn't take much all you need to do...
is just find out where you want to put it and do some some little dabs like that and get a little bit more out there on this edge here and then all we're gonna do took that at angle I just run over it flash I'm applying some pressure so much of an angle that brushes is if I do it straight on its gonna pull the material away if I do it like this it's gonna start pulling the material we don't want to pull the material we just want to flatten it off so always go to angle go really slow apply a little pressure and if you got to blend it in a little better blend that in and then do your final pass that's how you can get your edges looking really good with the top you see everybody already disease is it like a really dial yeah you always want to stick around make sure you got a little color left and you can I can even get color off of the stuff that's dripped on the plastic to just make sure you don't get a lot of dust in it and stuff that's all we're trying to do is just get the color on the edges that's on the top I guys want to notice how glass smooth this turned out we didn't bring any chemicals we didn't torch it completely glass smooth just a mere fix we're gonna be doing our urethane topcoat on this it's gonna be a high-gloss so with a little texture that's what gives the durability we have a glaze coat topcoat it'll it'll look just like this it's our flood coat topcoat that lays out glass smooth that is...
an option if you guys want this glass with look what are your things are definitely a lot more durable and more scratch resistant so we're getting ready to put that on now I'll show you that process alright so get ready do the top coat whenever you use a nap roller a hair fiber roller what was one of these the best tape to use as packing tape like they use on my packages or the yellow painters tape I like to I like to screw it up like that - it's only supplies but I like to do quite a bit of strips really roll it off and get it nice and be shedded that way we're not we're not losing any loose hairs in the topcoat and if you're doing our glaze coat top coat that goes on thick you want to use a foam roller squeegee a paintbrush I'm even applied our glaze coat plug coat with the paint stick report so you don't want to use a nap roller or a hair roller when you're doing our thick top coats because last thing you want is some hairs in it so easy you would yep and roll this we didn't bring our tray today so I'm just gonna get this roller kind of soaked up and this will probably go up this whole top here it's nice designed to go on really thin I'm sorry about the about the lighting they're doing a remodel this is a older house so remember always cross roll the bead and I'm moving fast all I'm trying to do right now is get this top coat even though I don't care about roller lines yet nothing really really fast get it...
all rolled out even and then I do my final passes after it's all rolled out nice and even then super easy product to apply you just want to work fast put it on too thin you will get roller lines and I'm just guys I'm working fast you don't want to be going slow you know like this there's no there's no point you're not gonna screw it up roll it quick get the stuff laid out if you do have drips from the

epoxy

you can Samba before you apply the topcoat all right now that I'm happy with how this is laid out nice and even I'm gonna do my final passes I'm always gonna have the metal end of the roller base in that direction I'm going that's it just fine a little back rolls real light you don't really want to do a section bigger than this if this was sailors another 10 feet long I would do do about this much and not work on my next section I would roll this out first and kind of feather into that and then I would finish that next section so that's it that's how

simple

that was I won't move on that over here we'll do the same thing and again I'm not I'm not trying to coat this whole thing at once I might have got a little much here so what we're gonna do we're gonna cook these little guys with it get a little bit rolled off on my roller go get some more off cuz again you want this stuff on pin this is gonna give you extreme durability extreme scratch resistance it's just an amazing topcoat all our...
contractors do it on all their fluorine the water-based products so it's perfect for this application for indoors now I'm gonna cross roll this out notice how fast I'm working I'm not worried about getting roller lines because we're gonna go through and touch all that up so you go across waste quick and all I'm doing is the section I'm on I'm not trying to go past this area smaller the sections you do the less tension head up for air staying constant now I'm just back on and notice how we've taken all the plastic off and just taped any spots to the roller my hid because the stuff isn't really a messy product and now when we're done we can just pull these few tape spots and we're done with the project weekend we want a next one all the reason we'd have to come back is maybe if you wanted to get some some pics of the tile all up and everything finished notice how n this is going on it's not designed to be a thick coating that's why it's extremely durable so since I stopped there I don't want to work that way back I want to get it rolled out pretty good don't want to feather this edge in once this is rolled out I start setting up so I want to get this edge done blending it in before I move on what I'm gonna do is just feather it off feather it up and pull it up there they go off I don't want to start and stop points on it get himself at home working about you 90 degrees in here 70 degrees you...
don't want too hot in the house that will make the speed up to once you're done with your edges you don't have much material we've been rolling so just roll over the counter real quick even out that roller pad you can see how nice is to start the layout it's still got that high gloss and it'll go clear that's kind of a white milky look to it that's so you can kind of tell where you've coated but if I come over here this is gonna be all all probably by now yeah so it's still got a little milky to it but it'll go perfectly clear once it's all dry remember guys we got a matte finish top coat a satin or matte finish we like to call it super cool it goes out the surface gives it it makes it more of like a home color hey guys thanks for watching the video I hope you enjoyed it if you did give it a thumbs up give it a like comment below share the video if you haven't subscribed subscribe to our channel while you do that make sure you click the bell button that's gonna turn your notifications on that way you're emailed or notified every time we post a new video that way you guys don't miss anything we want to give a special thanks to everyone that's helped us get this far on our YouTube channel we couldn't have done it without you all your likes all your shares your comments everything we really do appreciate it we love what we do we love to show you guys new
