Quite some time ago (more than a year) I was trying to make a segmented pen with burl and a diamond shaped center in Paduk wood. While turning the burl ends blew out on me rendering it almost useless, the center with brass surround attached to it was still there, so I set it aside. Out of sight out of mind until I came across it this past week during a rare clean up session. I cleaned up the tube and painted it red. Then cast it with Liquid Diamonds epoxy with gold and blue colors. The tube color turned the blue purple and the yellow to a golden brown. Although I waited till the temperature of the epoxy was about 110 before I poured there was more color mixing than I had hoped for. Never the less, I am happy with how it came out. Comments?
