I thought I'd try my hand at making my own blanks. I used Liquid Diamonds for resin as I don't have a pressure pot and I used Pearl-Ex powders for the colors. It'd be great if you could let me know what you think and give me any tips or suggestions. Thanks!

From left to right, these are the pigment powders I used....
Flamingo Pink/Misty Lavender
Bright Yellow/Antique Silver
Red Russet/Silver
Brilliant Gold/Spring Green
Aztec Gold/Duo Blue-Green
Solar Gold/Super Russet
Turquoise/Red Russet/Aztec Gold

Looking good. When I make new blanks I often cannot keep from turning a few to 3/4 inch round just to see inside.

I have not cast any blanks so I can not critique them. But they look good from a color standpoint. Would be interested in seeing how they look after turned.

I've casted a number of multicolor blanks, but none as successful as these. Your color seperation is fantastic! Mine tend to blend a little to much. Awesome job for your first time.
