Blue Media - our first Micarta series

Micarta is a very interesting material made of laminated fabric or paper, using resin to create a solid piece for working.

Aleia - Micarta pendant, hand made in Austria

Actually micarta is the name of a US based company that uses this very technique to produce heavy-duty knife scales - the originally intended purpose of this versatile material. Over time micarta established itself as general name for the material or procedure.

The many possibilities of micarta as basic material are outright fascinating and I will immerse myself deeper into this technique once spring arrives, for in winter the crazy lab is cold as the heart of Elizabeth Báthory.
