first off cloisonné is where pockets (historically made with metal walls – in jewelry) are filled with a colored material, historically enamel.
What I was thinking of doing was creating a wooden monopoly board by milling our shallow pockets wherever there is a color other than black then filling the pockets with colored epoxy (after squaring out the corners of course) White for the main area, then the different colors for the properties etc….
Or maybe vice versa and milling out the black lines and filling them in with black epoxy. Then staining the wood the correct game board colors.
My question is to anyone who has done anything remotely similar, because I am wondering about the finishing of the board.
Will the epoxy sand smooth. Will the wood stand lower/higher after sanding?
I know that pen turners have used epoxy so … I hope I’m not completely crazy.
