Lets talk RESIN...
Acrylic, Polyester, Epoxy... the list goes on. They have been around for a long time but are now definitely catching peoples attention in design as the possibilities are endless.
If you search the web the most common application for resin is encapsulating timber and making river tables where the resin is poured between two live edge pieces of timber, creating a river. Swirls of other colours can be pulled through the resin whilst mixing to create amazing effects.
So using resin with wood is one way but there are so many more for example at our local CrossFit™ gym we encapsulated loads of tshirts in a Epoxy resin to create a reception desk top!
