I wanted to make a ring out of sprinkles. I wanted to try a whole bunch of different things. So I added a little bit of glow, blue and red glow powder. I want to do it really dense. My first step was to measure out the amount of resin that I wanted to use. I used a scale to do this and this will determine the amount of catalyst that I want to use later. Then we've got our three different cups and I did three different things. The first one I'm added these circular kinds of green, purple,...

I wanted to make a casted resin ring that was filled with shredded cash. So I got shredded cash, that is in strips. Shredded cash usually comes from like the Federal Reserve. When they have old dollar bills that they just shred up. So there is like a few hundred dollars of cash in my bag. It's just all shredded up and it does not cost that much,  maybe 20 bucks. One thing I wanted to try was adding gold. I went and got a gold leaf that is super thin. I don't want to touch. If I touch that...

   I decided to make a casted resin ring that was mostly clear with tiny flowers inside. I also wanted to add a small amount of glow powder. To do this I had to cast a puck shape and use a section of PVC pipe that I have cut out as a mold.    I used polyester resin because it's easier to get bubble-free cast with it versus other resins, like alumalite for example. I sealed off the bottom of the PVC pieces just putting a piece of packaging tape on it. Then being careful I pressed it onto the...

I wanted to make an acid etched superconductor ring with obsidian facets. I had lots of fun making this ring. I had a customer who wanted a ring that's very similar but made out of a different material. I had the idea to do a practice of it first and I thought it'd look really cool and superconductor so I decided to experiment do it with that and I actually really do like the result. First, I cut off a piece from my tilted superconductor rod. I did think this ring would look much better with the tilted superconductor on...

I was working with Tyler Wright today from Carbon Fi. Tyler is a carbon fiber designer and he designed this carbon fiber ring to have a certain appearance and glow to it. Tyler has been developing this ring for over 5 years and has succeeded at making the worlds brightest glowing carbon fiber ring. The goal for this ring was to make a carbon fiber ring that looks like a normal carbon fiber ring in the day but really glows at night. Instead of laminated things together, he actually infused the glow right into the carbon fiber itself. This makes...
