    Technique #3: Neutral Color Glow Powder and Casting Resin in Ebony for fretmarkers 🙂 Casting Resin takes a bit more hardening time (24 hrs at room temperature to set and 72 to dry), but awesome results. I only need to remember to NOT radius the fretboard before doing the inlay! also, if the fret slots are cut, teflon tape (plumber’s tape) the slots! excellent video.

    Interested in where you got the random buck of stuff from, or is it just odds and ends collected over time. Thanks.

    Acrylic pouring paint can give some really unusual colours and patterns. Very much enjoying your videos
