I always did mine while glueing up dunc, but as you know, polyester and epoxy arent sposed to mix, thats why i use a tiny amount of pigment and do it seperately so youre gonna put some coloured metalflake in are you cant wait to see that

thinking you could do one side in Red one in Blue an white liners or even front 1/3rd one colour middle another and back another etc

was looking at Mica flake in gold n silver for Micarta style handles but left a massive box of samples of it behind when i left work 3 yrs ago

definatly wantto do blue glow powder for Orcs

Ive finished the blade today so heres part 2
Once the epoxy has cured, remove the tape and clamp the blade to a bar in the vice, using a flat block with 400 wet and dry, remove the exess epoxy till it looks like this.


once youve done both sides you can do the top, or leave it untill the handle is on, its up to you .
heres the finished knife



Good luck

Geoff.
