Item details

These two 19/64" thick x 1 1/2" wide x 4 3/4 " long pieces of Rainbow Laminate are made of many layers of upcycled blue denim and dark red cotton flannel. The fabrics are combined together under pressure with a polyester resin binder. The resulting material has a subtle stripe--enlarge the photo to see detail . These scales can be used many jewelry applications, such as lapidary pendants, beads, barrettes, and buttons, as well as for knife handles and gun grips. The material is hard enough to be shaped, sanded, and buffed using normal woodworking tools and techniques, by machine or by hand.

Due to the nature of upcycled fabrics, each set of scales is one-of-a-kind, and pictures of sample finished product, where shown, may not represent exactly what your finished item will look like. Some scales may have "pinholes" from captured air; these are part of the character of the product, but if desired, they can be filled with superglue before finishing.

Finishing instructions: Sand finished pieces to a 600 grit or higher, then apply a coating of wax & let dry, and buff with a wheel or soft cloth for a matte finish. To glaze to a high-gloss finish, do not wax but spray with a polyurethane finish. Some oils tend to darken the colors quite a bit (tung oil and boiled lindseed oil) so we do not recommend these. However, a light coating of WD-40 (in lieu of the polyurethane) gives the surface a "wet look" that brings out the pattern. Because they have thoroughly absorbed the resin, the finished product will be waterproof with no seal required. It is not unusual to find an occasional "pinhole" in the material--that is part of the character of this laminate. If undesired, pinholes can be filled with superglue before finishing.
