Hello - I have had a look and couldn't find a previous post about this before - apologies if I'm wrong.

I'm aiming to set some rather flat cabs into bezels and rather than make the bezel walls lower I would like to try to raise the cab higher, and I have heard that you can use sawdust for this. Having never done this before I wonder if any experts out there can advise - is this a durable option? does water not seep in if the bezel gets wet? and are we talking about any old sawdust or is there a specific one for the job?

What other means of raising a cabochon do others use? I'd be really interested to find out more if anyone has any tips.

Thanks very much everyone!
