Both bowls are mahogany. The red resin one is wenge and the purple one is zebrawood. The resin I used is west system and the dye is trans tint. Would anyone like it if I started a blog on how to do the resin? If I get enough feed back I will.

Well, heck yeah. Those are cool. Nice work. I can see that working with just about any combination of contrasting woods. Great idea.

Great looking bowls! Love the wood and epoxy inlays. I’d also love a blog on how you did this.

I have been coloring epoxy and using it for inlays, I did a blog on how I did that, but I would love to learn a new way. The epoxy has some characteristics that I don’t like and I am looking for a different way to get the same result. Sign me up.

I’m all for a blog on this subject. I’ve seen others but you can never learn to much or a different way of doing things. Go for it, I’m sure you’ll have more than a few followers. Thanks in advance.
