nancy....it most certainly does...... i've cast the same thing, trimetal flakes in clear....you have to add a lot of leaf....just to keep the tube from being seen.....that's why i add just a little colorant, to help hide the tube......
I have four done now but could make more. These four have been drilled at 23/63. I also use a forstner bit to flatten the blank so there isn't irregularity when mated to the stopper. Then while the blank is still in the centering vise I take it to another drill press and drill the 23/64 hole. That way they sit flush with the stopper. I use Ruth Niles stopper if you couldn't tell. I follow this method on all irregular blanks (wood and resin).
I would sale them for $5 each and then shipping would be extra. I have other colors also available at $4 and if enough interest I can make a separate posting in the SW MO chapter.
I will only sale these to the SW MO chapter since the whole IAP could be quite time consuming.
