    Hello everybody.
    Immediately warn the my English is bad. I apologize in advance.

    Let's start with the training. Take a cold enamel, choose a color transparent green. Calculated the advance and built form. And picked up a filler (chips used 4 types of metal, aluminum, brass, copper and nickel silver).

    He put a filler in the form below.

    Calculate the right amount of enamel and spread.

    Began to fill the form.

    Filled and left to dry.

    Pulled from the mold and is the result.

    Milled from billet bar. When you process it became clear that large filler particles were superfluous, at least for me as a single chip would have sufficed.

    Tried on the donor.

    Glued and polished. Now it's delicious - polished.

    very nice looking. If I knew how to I would try transparent one with single coloured metal flakes, I think that would look good. a bit like goldschlager.

    This is a crowbar. Treated explicitly in the machine. As it turned out, the more detail in a bar, the worse it is processed.
