Using A Balloon For Crushed Stone Inlays In Voids *PIC*

>Hello,

Here is a quick and easy trick using a balloon as a back up device for deep void filling when inlaying crushed stones. The face of the balloon is waxed lightly before insertion into the project. After insertion, the balloon is inflated just enough to seat against the void area and thereafter acts as a removable backstop for filling a deep inlay. When the inlay work is completed, the balloon can be easily removed.

P.S. Apologies for the photograph... My scanner is on on its last leg.
