I know most of you don’t do things like this but its for a friend
and I want to get it right the first time.
they brought in an old chip inlay they wanted to repair. I have not
done anything like this. Basically a cast ring with small (grains of
salt small) chips of turquoise. Am I right to assume.
- grind the turquoise and sift to desired size
2 Mix epoxy the add the mixture to the ring.
- Let set then grind down to desire height
- buff out with zam on buffing wheel
What kind of epoxy or glue? I remember someone saying thick super
would you add the chips below desired height then cap with a thin
how to keep the epoxy clear when buffing, sometimes when I do amber
it will melt if I am not careful and ruin the piece.
I looked for a tutorial on line but couldn’t find one, anyone know
of a good one.
could you use a harder stone like sand,jasper,saphires or quartz
Thanks in advance
