  1. You should have used wood for the bottom with sand instead of concrete and put some fish and seaweed into it. Start low sandpaper to high then polish it up.

  2. I do a lot of surf board repairs and when I need a perfect finish I wet sand to 12000 grit. You can also hit the top with a spray coat of high gloss deft or similar to make it pop. Also I noticed that you were sanding the concrete and resin at the same time. That will contaminate the sand paper with coarse grit. I hope that helps. I would suggest that you put a water soluble wax finish on the concrete to make it wet looking and give it a dull shine. You can simply use mop and glow and just keep adding coats till it get to where you like it. And the mop and glow will not hard the resin. Great build… Chelsea Wagner Watson.

  3. I do car detailing and the reason it was difficult to polish the epoxy is probably due to pad contamination. Basically if the pad picked up concrete from the sides you were just rubbing that concrete against the epoxy. The pad have to be 100% free from contaminants from start to finish. I think that was the problem here specially on the sides because of the proximity with the concert and the big polishing pad. A 1-2 “ pad may be a good idea if you want to do this project. I usually clean the pad with compressed air after 1-2 passes when Im polishing a car.

  4. looks Great. Very creative. Would be a Great way for me to display my seashells. Thanks for sharing your creative way.

  5. I think it would’ve looked even better if you did an ombre effect with the water going from darker to lighter. Still pretty amazing though

  6. Freaking awesome bro love it great job. The only thing I didn't like was it not in my living room. LMAO great job really.

  7. I would add some stones and other objects into the concrete or work more on the concrete to give it more interest visually

  8. I love it ive always wanted to learn how to do stuff like this especially since i live in Alaska and we have all.these jelly fish and starfish popping up on the beach

  9. Hey can you make this into a bowl shape that could be used as a small firepit? Still keeping the ocean theme?
