epoxy patio

How much epoxy and pebble would i use for a 10 x 10 size pattio?
What would be the best type of pebble to use for around the pool? I live in Arizona so it should stay cool and non slip surface. The total area i want to cover is about 1,500 sq ft.

See what Lowes has to offer and the quantities that you need.

Abitron (sp? Might be Abatron) has epoxy products too. If you buy from Lowe's or a box store make sure you double check expiration dates on epoxy materials. Box stores sometimes don't pull outdated materials and you never want to use an outdated epoxy product.

You may find having somebody come out and do this application cheaper than DIY.

Your just going to have to trust me on this. It's NOT going to work. The stones after a few years come loose and there's no way to fix them.
I'm sure some of the full time concrete guys will back me up on this one.
The only way this works if if it was exposed agragite. That's concrete with the stone mixed into it.
I've been on about a dozen Diy sites for the last 5 years and there's been hundreds of people asking how to reglue the stones after they fall off, sorry not going to happen.
