What is Deep Pour Epoxy?

Definition of Deep Pour Epoxy

Deep pour epoxy is a transparent, high-gloss, two-component resin specifically crafted for deeper casting endeavors. Unlike our Superclear® Table Top Epoxy and Designer Art Resin, which were designed for things like bar tops, seal coats, and resin wall art. (You can learn more about Art Resin by clicking here!)

Deep pour epoxy generally utilizes a low viscosity, enabling effortless pouring into molds, and can be cast in thicknesses of up to 2 inches or greater. This characteristic allows for easier molding of items such as river tables, sculptures, and charcuterie boards.

Explanation of Its Unique Properties and Formulations

Deep pour epoxy is formulated to be self-leveling and bubble-free, which makes it the perfect choice for high-gloss, crystal-clear castings. It also has a low exothermic heat buildup during curing, making it safe for use with delicate or heat-sensitive objects.

Comparison to Traditional Epoxy Resins

Traditional epoxy resins are typically limited in their pour thickness and can be prone to air bubbles, yellowing, and cracking when poured at greater depths. In contrast, Liquid Glass® Deep Pour Epoxy offers a thicker pour, eliminates air bubbles, and has superior UV resistance, making it a better choice for long-lasting, high-quality castings. Whether you’re looking for a stunning river table or a durable coffee table, deep pour epoxy is the solution you’ve been searching for.

Benefits of Deep Pour Epoxy

Durability and Longevity

One of the biggest benefits of deep pour epoxy is its durability and longevity. It forms a strong, hard surface that is resistant to impacts, scratches, and other damage. In addition, deep pour epoxy is resistant to water, chemicals, and other substances, which helps to protect your projects from everyday wear and tear.

Easy to Use

Deep pour epoxy is a cinch to use, thanks to its fluid consistency and natural ability to spread evenly. It’s straightforward to pour into mold forms, and its handling during the hardening process is a breeze. Whether you’re a seasoned woodworker or just starting out, Liquid Glass® Deep Pour Epoxy allows you to craft stunning, top-notch castings with ease.

Self-Leveling and Easy to Sand & Polish

Deep pour epoxy is also self-leveling, which means that it will even out and fill any gaps or voids in your mold, creating a smooth, consistent surface. Once it has cured, it is also easy to sand and polish, making it the perfect choice for creating high-gloss, crystal-clear castings.

Applications of Deep Pour Epoxy

Epoxy Serving Trays & Charcuterie Boards

One of the many enticing possibilities of deep pour epoxy lies in the crafting of serving trays and charcuterie boards. With deep pour epoxy, you can create a sturdy surface that is able to withstand scratches, impacts, and other types of wear and tear. This makes it an ideal choice for use in the kitchen or dining room, adding both beauty and practicality to your home. The self-leveling nature of deep pour epoxy results in an even surface that’s ideal for showcasing your favorite cheeses, meats, and snacks.

River Tables

Another popular use for deep pour epoxy is in river tables. River tables are stunning pieces of furniture that feature a river of epoxy running through the center of the tabletop. With deep pour epoxy, you can create a river table that is both beautiful and functional. Its clear, high-gloss finish is perfect for showcasing the natural beauty of the wood, while its durability and resistance to weather, heat, and UV make it ideal for use as a dining table or other high-use surface.


Aside from furniture and charcuterie boards, Liquid Glass® Deep Pour is also suitable for sculpture making. Its self-leveling characteristics enable the creation of intricate patterns and forms, and its clear, high-shine finish adds a stunning touch to your pieces. Whether you’re a seasoned sculptor or a recreational artist, deep pour epoxy offers the adaptability and dependability required to bring your artistic vision to life.

How to Use Liquid Glass® Deep Pour Epoxy

STEP 1: Make sure your environment has the correct temperatures, airflow, humidity, and cleanliness to begin your pour. All of these things can impact how the epoxy cures, so it’s important to make sure your working area has the right conditions for the specific application. Different types of pours may require different environmental circumstances, so be sure to adjust accordingly. 

STEP 2: Lay down plastic sheeting below your work area to allow for easy cleanup. Ensure that the working surface is completely level, as the epoxy will self-level.

STEP 3: Clean and prepare your surface prior to pouring any epoxy. Use isopropyl alcohol 90% or higher, or our Superclean Epoxy Cleaner, to remove any surface contaminates. If you’re pouring onto or against wood or other porous materials, make sure to seal the area with Superclear® Table Top Epoxy

STEP 4: Measure the Liquid Glass® Deep Pour Epoxy in a 2:1 ratio, 2 parts Base Resin to 1 part Activator. Pour into a clean, dry bucket or mixing cup and stir for at least 6 minutes with a drill mixer. Scrape the bottom and sides of the mixing container to ensure all epoxy is fully incorporated.

STEP 5: Transfer the epoxy to a new, clean mixing container, scraping the sides to remove all epoxy from the original container. Continue mixing for at least 2 to 4 more minutes to ensure proper mixing, again scraping the bottom and sides.

STEP 6: Once fully mixed, pour the epoxy directly into your mold. Do not scrape the sides to help the material out of the container, as doing so could incorporate unmixed epoxy into your project. Stop pouring once the epoxy has started coming out of the container in drips rather than a stream. Be sure not to exceed 4 inches thick in depth, according to the ambient temperature and air flow of your workspace. Remember, warmer temperatures and larger volumes of epoxy will require thinner pours at one time. 

STEP 7: Use a heat gun to remove any bubbles that rise to the surface of the epoxy. The warm air from the heat gun will break the surface tension and allow the bubbles to release. All you need is a 1-2 degree change to allow this to happen. Do not attempt to “work” bubbles out, as this will introduce external heat to the epoxy and could cause more bubbles to form. Start at 6” above the surface of the epoxy and continuously sweep the heat gun back and forth to prevent surface distortions and overheating. 

STEP 8: Allow the epoxy to cure for 72 hours (depending on ambient temperatures and volumes) in the climate controlled, dust-free environment. The epoxy will begin to get hard and tacky to the touch around 20 to 24 hours after pouring, but do not disturb it for at least 72 hours to ensure a proper cure. If the temperatures are too cool, it may take longer for the deep pour to fully cure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Deep pour epoxy resin is a multi-functional material that has gained popularity in recent years. However, it’s normal to have questions about its various applications and properties. Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions about deep pour epoxy resin to help clear up any confusion and make the best use of this product:

What is considered a deep pour for epoxy?

A deep pour for epoxy refers to the depth of the resin used in a single application. A deep pour is typically considered to be 1/2 inch or more in depth. Using our Liquid Glass® Deep Pour Epoxy you can pour anywhere between ½” up to 4”!

What is the difference between deep pour and regular epoxy?

Most epoxies are used for shallow applications and have a high viscosity, shorter working time, and less of a tolerance for greater depths. This makes it difficult to use for deep pour projects. In contrast, Liquid Glass® Deep Pour Epoxy has a lower viscosity, which allows it to be used for applications that are deeper without separating or sagging.

How deep can you pour epoxy at once?

The maximum depth that you can pour epoxy at once is dependent on the specific product you are using, the size and shape of your mold, and the ambient temperature and humidity levels. Our Liquid Glass® Deep Pour Epoxy can be poured up to around 4 inches in a single application, depending on factors such as the volume and ambient temperature.
