My pleasure! I'd say you're doing just fine on your own blank making, those look great.

Beautiful pens, and excellent blanks from both of you. What resin did you use? With the cooler temps moving in (ok, 70s but 60s are on their way) I'm about to switch to Alumilite. I don't like using Silmar below 70.

Thanks. Like the name (TattooedTurner).. I am still very new to the casting. The 2 blanks of mine, I used Alumilite. My first few tries I use the polyester resin. Out of the 10 or so tries I got one blank that was worth trying to turn.
Photo attached.

The Alumilite I didn't have a pressure pot and I brought it in the house to set up. and didn't touch it for over a week.

STILL LEARNING......

That one turned out nice. I wasted a lot of my first two gallons of PR on blanks that didn't turn out good. There is a bit of a learning curve regarding when/how to mix the colors together and how much catalyst to use. Alumilite is pretty much fool proof. I prefer PR but each has their advantages.

"The Alumilite I didn't have a pressure pot and I brought it in the house to set up. and didn't touch it for over a week."

And without the pressure pot, were air bubbles a problem for you? I have just started playing and settled on Liquid Diamonds - slow dry time but it settles out quite well without pressure...Alumilite is much cheaper though if it'll work without the pot.

The two pens green one and the blue. I didnít have any issues with air bubbles. But who knows. I might have just got lucky. I will be trying again.
