What did you use for the turquoise inlay? I’ve been looking to do something like this inlay on a jewelry box.
Thank you in advance!

UncleStumpy The turquoise comes from a mining company out west someplace. I take the stones and crush them to a powder. This is then poured into the cracks or a spot that I have carved out. Then I use CA glue to set it into place. You can pick up already crushed stone and other material to inlay from places like Craft Supply if you dont want to crush it yourself.

Wow, this brings Mug building to a whole new level. You said that the Epoxy was FDA approved? What brand is it, I’d like to try some.
