A collection of hardwood and resin pendants by C.M. Galdre
Each pendant was designed and milled on a small hobby cnc and hand sanded before an inlay of smooth-on 690 casting resin was mixed and poured. The resin was tinted with uv resistant SO-Strong opaque black epoxy tint and holographic tinsel glitter was added. After initial cure an additional clear gloss layer of resin was applied and left to cure again. Detailing was done with a series of hand tools and scrappers to remove excess resin and level the wood surfaces before finishing sanding was completed. The final piece was then finished using 100% tung-oil a naturally curing oil that leaves a soft but durable semi-gloss finish.
