Very cool. Both look great! Care to share your process for adding color?

It is dry glass powder set in the channel left by the router. http://www.amazon.com/Tomato-Red-Opales ... B00SYYERIK
In both of mine I used transparent glass powder. It is not transparent until the resin hits it though.
I used a casting resin as my finish , I just poured it on top of the surface and it did not move the powder.
