I had a lot of fun playing around with some Easy Inlay mother of pearl inlay powder today. This stuff is fantastic. And it is super easy to use.
First, I found some a cool stock illustration to start from. But the detail in the anchor was to fine so I needed to thin out the lines a bit and invert the color. I also added a stroke around the anchor to keep a gap between the inlay and the rest of the engrave.
I also added a few shapes, the red line in the picture above, to cut out some custom masks to keep the the MOP only in the anchor.
I then just put some painter tape on some cardboard and cut out my mask.
Next was the fun part. Fill the engrave with the powder.
I am missing some photos from the next few steps, but basticly you just cover the powder with liquid super glue and let it soak into the powder. After it dries just sand it down and you are done.
I also tried a version using resin but it is still drying so i’ll have to update the post later with picture of that version as well.
I did have a little resin left over so i tried filling one of my old acrylic engravings with the left over. I cant wait to sand this one down and polish it.
