A few years ago, I took up polymer clay and epoxy resin cabochon casting, with the intent of using the round little things for woodturning embellishment. Just recently kicked it up a notch with glow-in-the-dark cabs, and it's putting a whole new spin on skill-toy turning. Watch the video to at least 0:24 to get the payoff:

Ed, that is very, very cool and the last time I heard “cabochon” terminology was from French furniture, jewelry and accessories. Is the cabochon flat in the back or rounded as well?
