so what i did, is :

1- starting by using a white spray paint on the bowl, so i got a nice bagground, then i cut the patterns  in printed on the vinyl and stuck then on the bowl.

2- i used a dril to cut a hole in the buttom of the bowl, and installed the outlet for the sink.

3- i mixed the resin and i coted the bowl with it ( 2 mm thikness or so ), the sink was then ready

Looks great! How did you get the flat vinyl sheet to go into the bowl without creasing?
stregoi (author)  crickleymal9 months ago
what i did, was cutting the pattern in small pieces and align then separately inside the bowl ( look at step 4 ) that way, there was no creasing :)
