How can I fix my diy countertop that was burned by crockpot?

by Kpe28950832

My husband and I bought pre-made countertops at Home Depot but since they didn't have a countertop for the bar, I did it myself. I used countertop paint, stone texture spray and then did two coats of epoxy. It looked great but one day we used the crockpot on the bar and it changed the color with a perfect outline of the crockpot. How can I repair this with the 2 coats of epoxy? Help!

    A picture would be very helpful so we could see the extent of the damage.

    I had something similar happen to me where the crock pot exposed a crack in the countertop. Have you thought about painting your countertop?

    I don't think it'll stick to the epoxy! I'd like to fix the bad spot to match the rest. But thanks for your suggestion.

    I did this as well. I don't know what epoxy you used but I used something called ENVIROTEX. It was like an epoxy resin that you pour and is used on bar-tops. It can be poured on and then use a blowtorch to get out all the bubbles. This is what I would suggest to do. We did a few coats and I remember that my husband and I said that if the top gets messed up ever, we could totally do another coat to fix any sort of repairs from heat or scratches. So... I guess what I am saying is that if you were to do a coat of ENVIROTEX, I don't think you would ever notice any heat rings under that layer. If you absolutely think you would see through to it, then I would do another spray paint on the layers that you got and then pour the envirotex on top of that. Just follow the directions on the box. The edges can be tricky so look into the best way to do that when you pour the stuff. Good Luck!
