Staining Mop?


Recommended Posts

Pearl doesn't stain well, since it's non porous. You can tint it by applying a transparent colour over the top, but this isn't ideal for inlay, since you'll likely sand it away when you level the inlay.

Youcould try:

1.Polish the pearl to a high shine.

2.Tint it with coloured clear.

3.Inlay it a little below the surface of the inlay field.

4.Flood the cavity with clear epoxy and CA and then level and polish this.

This will require feindishly good routing, since you won't be able to use any coloured filler to conceal gaps.
