Not really a build or joinery project but….
My bathroom 1/2 wall had a painted top. In 6 years I had to paint it 4 times due to wear. Decided to make a new cap out of MDF and Epoxy to create a faux marble look
Second photo is what it was before.
Last photo is the raw MDF next to the finished project

That turned out fantastic! How about a blog, detailing the process? Or a link to a good resource… I can think of a couple places where I could use something like that at my store…

To answer:
The process was fairly simple and it wasn’t my process to start with. I followed the StoneCoat Countertops method of an “exotic pour” method.
I used their white undercoat paint on MDF with a double thickness on the edge. I flushed it up with a cut through both on the table saw.
1/4” round over on the top edge and 1/8” on the bottom.
Two coats of undercoat paint and then the epoxy pour with a final topping of Ultimate Top Coat for the hard natural matte finish. I’d check out their site for full details on the method

That came out a lot better than the videos they show. They take it too far.
