Saved this little box from the trash at a flee market. Had it collecting dust on my garage shelf. Well saw a video from Steve Good and throught I would try my hand at liquid inlay. Searched the web and found a holloween spider from 2009. Scroll sawed the spider and poured the inlay. Working on a flowered clock, may be finished with it about a week.

InLance epoxy, $30 a pint, plenty of colors, this spider is Turquoise and metalic red flakes. The metal settled to
the bottom, look at the spider center on the inside of the box. Had trouble finding Inlace but did find it at .. drying time to sanding- 4 hours,, sujjest 24 + hrs before sanding. Need lots of fresh air.
also you can buy clear and use powder dye, works just as well but the Turquise looks a little like rocks, I like it, now I can add color to my scroll saw cutting.

Gary, I really like that spider design. Looks neat.
If you’re having trouble with the heavier metallic settling to the bottom you could do the Inlace pour in two stages. Fill half way with plain red or whatever color and let set. Then do a second pour with the flakes mixed in.
I’ve also done a full pour and waited until it started to set up and then pushed flakes or whatever in the top.
Keep playing with it and have fun.
Waiting for your next project!
