Video here!

I got a fresh jug of epoxy! This is basically me playing with it and some pearl pigments usually used for automotive paints.

Quite a while ago I grabbed this oak log from the family farm. It has been sitting out for years after it was cut up from some fallen limbs for firewood. I wanted to see if I could get some usable pieces of wood from it (which I will in an upcoming video)

I had also been saving the old broken LED candle figuring I could use the guts for some project. I’m not sure if it comes through in the video but it has a gentle flicker, and has a timer to turn off/on automatically.

To stabalize the wood and be able to slice it I filled the voids with the resin. I think the cross sections came out with some pretty amazing patterns and I will find some way to use the extras in the future.

Enjoy!

You might want to post some additional pictures as there are many people who have lousy streaming capabilities, or others such as myself who just dont want to click unverified links for whatever reasons.

I had such a hard time getting decent pictures of this one…. None of them seemed to show the pearl.

As for the link I’m not sure how to verify it, however it is a standard youtube video link so its all safe :)
