Default Another El Grande rollerball pen from PR casting

Here's another El Grande rollerball made from one of my cast blanks from last weekend. This was the one that the first color setup before I could add the bronze. You can see in a few places where I tried to stab the stick into the green to allow the bronze to penetrate a little.

Didn't get the color blend I had intended but I like it anyway!

Because of the way the bronze layer turned out I thought centering the clip over it was the best choice. What do you think ?

Good looking casts Lenny, cool looking pen, They may be big, but I like the grip on the El Grande.

I think you got the best out of it Lenny. That bronze strip looks like it's supposed to be there. Clip placement is spot on. The colors are crisp and vibrant, excellent casting and completion!

What a GREAT save, Lenny! That cast looks intentional and the clip placement is spot on. I really like the way the color separation works. I usually do not care for two tone pens, but that one really kicks, congratulations.

Nice job! The green part looks a lot like abalone. ElGrande and Churchill are my favorite kits.

Thanks for the kind comments. I am starting to like the streamlined El Grande .... it is at least a good kit to show off a blank.

I look forward to doing something again with the metalic bronze. I think that one has promse.
