Finally finished my OTI Popping rod. This is the 1st rod that I’ve built in several years and there was a little bit of a learning curve. There were several firsts in this build, including 1st try at Marbling, split grip, 2 piece, spinning rod, etc… I actually made a mistake in the marbling here but I think it worked out in my favor. Hard to see in pics, but I put blue into the epoxy before it had a chance to set-up at all, which made it far too fluid to "marble." When I brushed this it actually laid down a deep blue swirl into the base coat, then threw on the silver and last touch of blue when it had set up about 20 min. Kind of a mulit level effect. I definately underestimated how much the base color would run over my writing and Logo. It's definately something I've learned for the next set of rods. I'll lay down the marble, write over it and THEN lay the last coat of epoxy. Really bad here!!!
