I am looking to start trying to do some small decorative metal overlay onto wood scales.
Having never tried this before, what is the standard practice for this?
Would you just glue the metal to the scale, pin it in place, or recess the metal into the scale for a true inlay?
Second question...How would you finish out the scale? Coat the whole thing so the metal is smooth and flush with the surface, or leave it above the scale for a smooth texture difference.
