Entry 2
Funline style (PSI kit) solid resin swirl using Smooth On polyurethane resin finished with Shellawax.I used Smooth On’s Smooth Cast 300, 3 cups each tinted in black, green, or purple. All 3 were poured into a mold at the same time (or as much as possible considering I only have 3 hands!) to create a swirl effect.

Entry 6
I first cast an Alumilite blank then sawed it lengthwise with my bandsaw.I then epoxied a piece of aluminum flashing to half the blank . After the epoxy cured I then recast in a different color. Once that casting cured I sawed again i down the opposite side and repeated the process.
