Default Mother of Pearl

This is mother of pearl inlay wrapped in a Mesa crome kit.
This is also my first time using Allumilite, and while a bit stressful, I love the results.

Thanks for looking!

Nice. Do you find the reflectivity of the inlay in the Alumilite to be equal all of the way around, once turned, or does it have any areas where the inlay shows more edge and less surface?

Good question . Might be influenced by whether casting was done vertically or horizontally .

No, it's equal all the way around. I used tube-in molds for this, and the inlay was applied directly to the brass with thick CA. So it's a uniform thickness of resin and the Mother of Pearl powder.

Ahhh, that would make it consistent. Thanks for sharing.
