I like to add detail where ever possible, I'm not a supporter of "less is more". I created a little silver frame by cutting out a piece of silver & soldered on a bezel. I drew a little picture and watercolored it. Set the picture & filled in my little frame with a 2 part resin. A little tricky to fill such a small space with such a goopy substance.
A friend and I once made a coffee table with bottle caps and filled in the area with resin. It is amazing! Very durable and scratch resistant. Equivalent to 25 coats of poly-eurothane or something ridiculous like that.
