Hello zooboyz and Welcome to the Community!


That's a bummer, have you emailed the company that makes the glaze product you used? They would be suited to answer your question, and tell you exactly what you can do to remedy the burn mark, if there is a possibility of mending it.

Hello zooboyz!

Depending upon the depth of the burn, you should be able to sand the surface until the burn is eliminated.

Try using 150-grit sandpaper to cut the surface and a higher number sandpaper to polish the surface after you eliminate the burn.

Let's add a few more thoughts to improve your process zooboyz!

Parks Super Glaze is a great product for embedding coins, cards, and other memorabilia into table or bar tops.

Here are two hints that will eliminate two of the most common problems with projects:

1) Make certain the surface is level before pouring the glaze. Since the glaze self-levels, surfaces that are not level will produce layers that are thick on the low end and thin on the high end ... self-leveling into an uneven layer; and

2) Take care to stir the glaze and hardener very slowly to prevent capturing air bubbles in the mix. You should also pour the mixed glaze very slowly to prevent adding air bubbles.

If you follow these two ideas, you'll finish the project faster, it will appear better, and you'll have almost no air bubbles.

SuperGlaze dries to a very firm, solid surface.

The idea of using heat to remove air bubbles from a solid surface goes against the physics of dense solids.
