In this layer you can generally use the same materials as you did or the skin except you will need to make the layer reach a thickness of 0.5 - 1cm. This can be achieved by making multiple layers and rolling them on each other. When you are first beginning, you will use a thicker layering (1cm), but as you get better with your drilling technique, then use a thinner layer so that there is less distance between the cortex and the plunge detector.
