The second coat of varnish was applied after buying another tin, this time a full gloss finish, on the final wall and the door missed out yesterday.

We started messing with very smelly polyester resin and glass fibre, to coat the tray in two layers, to provide a tough waterproof surface. Very messy indeed but thank goodness for latex rubber gloves!

We made five small samples of the white topcoat using different size sand grains and sugar! And later we can decide which is the best for providing a good grip for our feet on the wet soapy shower tray!

The sugar idea came off the web and once the resin is hardened then simply wash and dissolve the sugar leaving behind a textured surface!
