Heat Etching Stone On My Koi Inlayed Bowl

Recommended Posts

ok a couple years ago i was playing with a diamond burr that the tip had worn down. and when i touched it to a inlay that i was doing it ended up burning the stone or the super glue leaving behind a black line. then i used this to draw lines on my stone. i created some cool details to a flower creating some depth. eventuly it stoped doing that and just ran across the surface. i just finished a koi fish inlay on a bowl and i want to add detail to the surface. i had thought to do the same thing to draw the scales and folds in the fins ect... but i have no real experience burning stone. or even drawing on the stone. does anyone know anything about burning stone? or know of a marker or pen that wont run and blur with the finishes. maybe i can etch the stone and rub ink into the etched lines. any ideas?

Not sure how to answer that since it's lots of small stones glued together. So it's solid stones but it's composite since it's made of small pieces :)

Well, you answered it. It is a glued composite of small stones rather than a naturally occurring stone-only stone. Thank you for clarifying.
