No one calculated the patience of a saint into the cost.

I've seen a couple of floors use pennies, but the other projects cleaned the pennies first.

punko I kind of like the uncleaned pennies look. Gives it a little more flavor.

monkwarrior You must get your epoxy resin at wholesale prices. Could you hook me up?

yelloow12 uhh. i dont get it, i just made a guess.  27,000 pennies = 270$  i figured about $40/$40 for the epoxy/Grout.  But yeah now that i think of it it might have been a bit more for the expoxy.. like 100 bucks, so maybe the total should be a bit higher, like $400sh

monkwarrior Which is very cheap to redo a floor. Just some labour but you get bragging rights if you do the work yourself.

Gerry1of1 Yeah it's a pretty good deal actually, if it was me though, i'd have first run them all through a vinegar+salt bath, then used the shiniest ones, butt it still looks all right.

monkwarrior I don't know. Shiny is nice, but the texture you get from the combination of dirty/shiny is kind of nice.  Kind of like tile work but metallic.

Gerry1of1 Yeah, i actually looked up some of this on youtube.  and people make designs with dark/shiny ones.  Like i saw a diamond pattern, with  patterns around the room border.  Kind of interesting.

daegog assuming the same volume of gold coin, at .360 cubic cm per penny, you're looking at 27000 (count) x .360 (volume) x 19.2 (density of gold) = ~188kg of gold, x ~US$41k/kg and you're looking at US$7.7M for the materials.

Plus the cost of grout, epoxy, and labour, of course.

daegog It's probably already been done, especially in the past at some point.

I didn't think it was going to look good at all, but after the grout and epoxy, it looked pretty cool. Probably cool for a kitchen. My only question is, won't that epoxy scratch after a while? It looks good when it looks like glass, but it'll look like shit once it gets scuffed up.
