I would like to do an acrylic pour on my dining room build-in buffet. It will mainly used for looks but may hold platters or plates with food. Can I do a resin finish over this.

    I did my countertops with resin epoxy from Lowes. I put colored mica directly into the epoxy and poured that way. You could do an acrylic and epoxy over it..... in fact if I could do it over I would do it that way. Just practice your pours with the colors you choose before hand. Watch some videos on how to achieve different effects..... I recommend some bottles (like condiment bottles ketchup and mustard that you'd find at dollar tree red and yellow ) to squirt your paint .... they really make things easier. Paper towels work flgrear for swiping method..... you'll find little tips the more your practice and watch videos.
