Inlay Advice Please


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I want to start getting into inlay work. I understand the concepts, my question is inlaying smaller material. I want to use small gears instead of dots. Short of cnc machine, I don't think its feasible to inlay intricacies of a small gear. My direct question is would it look ok if I simply made a small circle inlay and used black epoxy to set the inlays? It could be nice, it could be tacky, I don't know as I can't find anything similar to what I'm asking online... thanks in advance!

The ubiqiutous "try it first" answer seems to apply here, although Im nervous to buy all the materials only to have it not work out haha. The gears I want to use are very small, used on watches and stuff like that, so it would be almost impossible to have them wit ha "fitted inlay" like normal stuff.

Guess I gotta just dive in the pool here haha
