Default Casting Pen Blanks

Some more pen blanks that I have cast using Liquid Diamonds resin. I am printing out labels on a label paper I got from Online Labels. It is a weatherproof matte paper for inkjet and it makes the possibilities for custom pen blanks unlimited.

Those look really good. Did you have to use any sort of spray like Rust-Oleum to seal the ink? I heard you have to do that when using Liquid Diamonds.

So far I have not had any problems with the ink. The label paper I am using is made for inkjet printers and I have printed the labels and cast them in the same day with no special precautions taken. That's not to say that it could not happen, I just haven't experienced it so far.

Those are awesome. Might be interested in some just like that in the near future if you’re selling

Thanks for comments, they are appreciated.
Zander, PM me if you are interested but I looked at some of your castings and I think you got this covered.
