Buried Treasure…


In this part of the build… burying the treasure…the Skull and Bones buttons…

I have started off by drilling a through hole in the centre of the curved end… yes I has a lot of confirmation that the curved end looked better… and then rounded over the edges..

Next … the holes were dug… OK I used a forstner bit to drill holes to bury the buttons…

Here we see the buttons in the holes and 2-pac clear resin filling in the holes…

When this is dry… sand it flat and smooth… I take it up to 1500 grit  and then oil the resin to make it crystal clear again…[sanding tends to dull and cloud the resin]

More on this later…
