Hi there. I’ve got a student with a question I’ve never had to face.
She’s forged a ring to cup an irregular amber nugget and wants to
secure it in with epoxy [the dual-tube dimethyldoubledeath stuff]
rather than tension etc. I had some hesitation knowing the organic
nature of amber and wanted to pop this query out there before I gave
her the green light. Do you think it’ll be fine or will something in
the epoxy dissolve the plasticated sap over time?
