  2. Making a Ring with Crayons or Snakeskin and Epoxy

    ring made from crayons and a ring made from snakeskin

    Wood and acrylic are the most common materials used when turning a ring. But that doesn't mean you are limited to those materials. Sometimes it's fun to experiment with other materials in your turning projects. Peter Brown is known for pushing the limits of turning materials. In this case, he used crayons and real snakeskin to make two unique rings. First, he used our Stainless Steel 2-Part Ring Core and a set of crayons to create a colorful ring. Next, he mixed pieces of snakeskin and epoxy to create a micarta, or layered material, turning blank. Learn how he created these rings in his video below.
