Mother’s Keepsake in Corian

Postby Jozua » Fri Nov 03, 2017 12:00 pm

This is a gift for a friend on her birthday. I decided to try Michael’s box in Corian.
Due to possible problems with hinges, I decided to make a fitted lid by pocketing a 5-mm recess on the bottom of the lid for a snug fit.
Copied from members that made a tray for the Paradise Box, I made small tray also out of Corian.

Stunning and a more fitting use for Corian cannot be found. I sure it was well received. Thanks for sharing.

I really like the way it came out, just beautiful. How did you stain/color it and with what? I have some black corian I need to do something with. Didn't want to just dump some contrasting paint in the carvings.

Thank you for the kind words. But the real compliment must go to Michael who gave us all these beautiful projects.

The colour is simply black paint from a rattle can. The advantage of Corian is that there is no bleeding and the excess is easily removed by lacquer thinners

Excellent. I have plenty of those. I might give it a try with one of the projects on black corian using a gold paint for accent color. Thanks.

Excellent work.

Another way to remove excess paint with corian is to paint the whole thing with color of choice then scrape off the excess with a credit card type card.
This removes most paint where its not wanted but of course anything engraved remains painted.
When dry, simply use an orbital or mouse sander [light grit, 120 or so] to remove from all areas not engraved - I follow this up with a matte clear coat which really makes the whole thing pop.

Thanks Doug,
What a brilliant idea I never considered that. I will try that next time. To be honest if one over-spray, removing the excess paint with thinners can create quite a mess.
