Jewellery in the Making - Part Four

Preparation is everything before glueing up.


After applying the epoxy with a roller, I loaded up the forma and tightened on f-clamps.










After waiting overnight for the glue to set, the clamps are released and the forma is seperated.


To speed up the finishing process, I used an engineering lathe for sanding the cuff set.










For the finish, I used cellulose sanding sealer and Renaissance wax.  I could not get such a great finish without the engineering lathe.
