First we powder coated the outer edge with color then we clear coated the entire surround with the center edges brushed. The fireplace had Bronze Rust Copper FireGlass with a Sterling Silver back panel.
Here is how it all began:
Now we start with a mock up of the surround to determine what size and shape works best.
Bill placed the surround template on backwards, oops. The paint was to be on the back side.
Now the template was placed properly.
Here is the installation: The rear panel is installed.
Now the front panel is installed over the rear panel.
There is 1" of black glass on the inner edge, it is very hard to detect in the pictures.
