« Part 6: carving the inlay Part 7 of Ambrosia-birdseye maple series Part 8: Attching the lid »

Here is a coffee cup my daughter picked out for me while at Discovery Cove, Orlando, FL. I thought you would like to see my inspiration for this part of the project.

Above is the carving filled with epoxy and sanded. Now to clean out air bubble craters and epoxy again. I love this blue, it has a metallic flake in it that looks great.

Until next time,

Would love to see a post regarding the epoxy and the pigments you use. Tips and tricks would have lots of interest! Maxwell
