It’s Come to This

Call it spring fever. Call it desperation. I’ve got nothing but myself to write about today so here’s the latest inlaid bowl that my husband turned and I inlaid with polymer.

After years of making polymer jewelry, I moved over to the housewares department. It was great fun to add knobs, switchplates and lights in our little Marrakech bathroom. The sink is a walnut bowl inlaid with matching polymer, naturally. And the tub surround is roofing copper. Add candles and bathsalts and a bath becomes a very exotic experience.

So there you have it. Now all I have to do is find something for tomorrow!

                    Woah!!! I’ve been searching the net for 4 days, looking for a method to inlay into wood something like this, looking at epoxy resins, PCs, everything. And, similarly, the baking was the wall I ran in to. Thanks so much for the heat gun idea, and the absolutely inspiring projects you have on the site. You guys rock!
