This is a quick up date of my progress. I cut out the butterfly on my band saw, then hand sanded it to round out the edges to a 400 grit. Of course small things do break & this was no exception. The antennas of my butterfly broke, so I am in the process of fixing that. First I tried some tight bond2, it didn’t stay. Next & finally, CA glue with a mixture of blood wood dust. I’m letting it dry now, then a little more sanding & I’ll be ready for the next coat of epoxy. Here is some progress photos.
Here it is cut out and sanded.
Don’t you just hate it when things break? Here is the boo-boo I have to fix. Who said “if it can happen it will”? Well it did!! I’m going to get this fixed and get the next coat of epoxy down then I’ll post again. I hope this helps some of you find a new technique to try. Maybe even some of you smarter guys can give me some advice. Some of you already have, & I thank you for it. See you in the next post, Maybe later tonight. Mark
Note: I have another idea based on this same concept. I might do another blog on that one too if anyone is interested. Does anyone know if epoxy mixes well with acrylic paint? Hey, thanks for getting this far with me on this project. I’m new to this blog thing so I don’t even know if I’m doing it very good, hey at least I’m trying huh? Have a good afternoon. See ya next blog.
