What did you do to keep air bubbles out of the epoxy? I have a dresser I am wanting to do something very similar with. I have never worked with clear epoxy before and understand that it can be a bit challenging to get the imperfections out.

I poured just enough to cover the bottom ( small rocks) first, every pour I would go over with a propane tourch and pop the bubbles. I did have a bunch of them in the top layer and had to router it out 1/4” deep and re pour. There is still a some tiny bubbles in it but they are hard to see. And yes it’s a messy pain in the *** doing these. I painted the leaves then covered them with polyurethane before pouring.

Yes real rocks and leaves, I had to repaint them “ yellow” after allowing them to dry. Then painted the elk on with acrylics.

Tried a hair dryer and a heat gun. Problem is with the fan on either of those it blows dust into the epoxy worse.

Where is the best source to get the epoxy?

I've used epoxy but only with fiberglass and that epoxy was expensive!!!!!

I got a gallon of epoxy on Amazon for $40 and it worked good. Just be sure to mix it properly.
