A couple years ago, I posted what I considered to be a near successful attempt at creating my own turquoise webbing effect. if you care to view it just check my thread history for "tru-stone success?" won't be hard to find as I only started about a dozen threads. So anyway, several people asked for the recipe while others advised me to keep for myself. I took that advise and have always kind of regretted it. I fell like it was not a decision that reflected the nature of this group. You all were helpful beyond measure and when I actually had something that I could contribute, I selfishly guarded it. It has been along time since I was able to make any pens or really get into my shop. I don't really think I will get back after it either. Someone from the group contacted me after 2 years, asking for the recipe. I figure this is as good a time as any to apologize, and to rectify. I have made a short video explaining the method that I used to acquire marbling and webbing in cast resin. I didn't actually have the resin to demonstrate properly, but I hope that someone finds my video to be helpful. the finished product was never "perfect" but with minor tweaking, I believe you can create something you will be happy with. I will subscribe to this thread, so I will receive any questions and I will answer the best I can, but this is also somewhat of a "goodbye" (just 2 years late)
