Cool A Few Recent Pens

A few recent pens from my shop.

The Orange & Pearl Cholla and Blue & Pearl Cholla Sierras are two casts from the Alumilite I won during the Birthday Bash.

The Sweet Gum Balls Sierra, is cast in clear resin. I reverse panted Metallic Blue. The Sweet Gum Blank came from Bobspenfactory. This is one of the free blanks Bob offered through Jeff a couple months back. I love the 3-D look the clear resin gives the sweet gum ball.

The blanks from Bob were 4". After turning the Sierra, I thought that the blank looked a lot like tumble weed. So, I used the remainder of the blank, reverse painted it black. Added a couple pieces of Mesquite and mounted on this bolt action.

Thanks for looking.
