Tutorials - Making "Damascus" (Rag) Micarta
A "twist" on multilayer micarta making.
Every 2 pieces of clothing, I place marine resin like honey on a toast (I've used a total of 350 grams of resin) (Pictures 1 and 2)

Once I have the finished stack of clothings and resin, I twist them just using my (gloved) hands. (Picture 3 and 4)

I place that twisted cylinder between two wooden boards covered with plastic bags to prevent glueing and then get that on my manual press and leave it there til it dries. (Picture 5)

Straight out of the press, already dryed up. (Picture 6)

Pattern after some grinding. (Picture 7)
