serving tray question

yell_roseMarch 16, 2008

I'm going to do my first serving tray. And it will be a mix of china, glass and some beads. So, have any of you had a problem with the difference in thickness? It isn't great, this is thin china, but there is a difference. I'm considering using resin as grout and to cover all, so it would be even. Has anyone done that?

YELL: I never worry about trying to keep everything level. I think it adds so much more interest to a piece to HAVE irregular levels. On your tray, it depends on how you w/use it. If you use it to serve cheeses/cookies or whatever, then it doesn't have to be level. If you use it to serve drinks, it should be somewhat level. Some people use little pieces of craft sticks under a thin tile, and some use scrap glass under a piece to bring it up to level, and then there are those who just add an extra gob of GE II or mortar.

Thanks Cal, that's exactly what I was looking for! I'm going to skip the grout so I can play with things to embed in resin. Slow, this is a large serving tray, carring wine glasses scare me the most!LOL

You're right - w/that kind of service it needs to be level. HURRY w/WIP pictures.
