Re: Sharing my second gun build.

nice - but one thing - if you are going to use old growth teak - why paint it? you can get away with mahogany or sapaelle. good job - I just think it's maybe illegal to paint teak - or possibly should be -haha
good second build - I like the pearl too- I've done a few and it's hard to work with - as it wants to spread on it's own- so I had a hard time controlling it.
Doing it in a cool room - so the epoxy was a bit more viscous - helped me
how did you spread the pearl and what did you use?
I used castin craft liquid pigments and had great results- I have used powder and had ok results.
castin craft makes a pearl pigment that you can add to any color to give a metallic hue to it
I bet your gun shines on a sunny day - just under the surface - it's going to glow like a light saber they look so cool with the pearl
if you are going to do another one with another cool epoxy coating - it will get better and better
