Topic tags/keywords: epoxy finishing

I was turning a piece of Rimu from New Zealand and I decided to make a design with Paua shells embedded in epoxy resin. I poured the epoxy with hardener and it was quite clear. As it dried, it had small “crack-like” scratch marks. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to make it smooth and polished?

You could try dripping a small amount of Cyanoacrylate glue over the cracks and buff or lightly sand it smooth.
