Furniture Making vol.6 (One-year 2019 – Jioh)

Once the animal glue on inlay plates has been complete dried off, you will witness the gaps in between the positive and negative space. To mend the gaps in between, mix gesso powder with color powder to resemble the color of wood. Mix the powder together with drops of animal glue. Once the mix is in the right consistency, apply the mix on flower plates.
For the vase inlay, we used the stucco to mend the gap.
Let it dry over the night and once all the stuccos are dried, use sandpaper to clean the surface. Always pay attention not to scratch the plate with the sandpaper.
Due to my mistake of applying too much stucco on the vase inlay plates, I needed to use the sandpaper machine to clean the surface.
