Gone fishing ...

Great piece of carving! If you like glow in the dark stuff you should check out bio-luminescent powder; you mix it with resin although you can use other stuff to mix with it too. The glow is amazing - 15 minutes of daylight charges it and the glow is so bright that it's almost like a light. You can now also get it in lots of different colours too. I did a coffee table with a gnarly slab of yew using glow in the dark resin to fill in natural holes in the wood but the photos really don't do justice to the effect!

TTP you beat me too it :)


Simon, i found resin (2 part modeling resin, acrylic stuff) on Ebay pretty cheep plus the glow-in-the-dark powder. Was fun to play with but getting a good seel to stop it flowing out (I filled the bottom of a bowl i cut-out with it) was tricky. Happy to chat about it if you want. Only issue i have withe the glowing-powder is that the resin becomes a bit yellow. Next time i will combine the glow-powder plus something else so it looks better in daylight. Maybe some turquoise mixed in or maybe some ground copper powder.
