Scott Grove will demonstrate how to create beautiful beetle, butterfly, and dragonfly inlays to accent turned vessels. He will show a variety of methods that include pigments, metal filings, and exotic minerals like mother of pearl, opal, paua abalone shell, and more. Scott will review the pros and cons of different resins including quick setting UV resins. Surface, translucent, and window inlays be covered, too. This will be an action-packed demonstration with lots of tips and tricks and tools to boot. During the live, interactive demonstration, his wife and co-host, Nancy, helps organize Q&A and provides links in real time, too.
