    Default Brush with stone inlay

    I created an inlay from stones and black epoxy then made a brush and inlaid the stone into the back of the handle. I colored with rocks ...

    Inlay: Red Jasper, Rose Quartz, Malachite
    Brush: Yellowheart wood, African Blackwood, badger knot

    After shaping the stones I created a mold for the epoxy pour (sorry I don't have progress pics for each piece.)

    Looks gorgeous. I like the size of the grip. It should feel good in the hand.

    Did you have any issues with the weight distribution given how long the handle is and how far from the bristles the inlay sits?

    @DZEC This shape is a little back heavy to be honest but its back heavy without the stone inlay, the inlay when finished flattening and polishing is only about as thick as a nickel. The shape and weight distribution feels nice in the hand and when you rest it brush up it feels like it won't fall over.
