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.

Great Pens Tim,
Excellent Blanks, well matched to the Hardware.
Superb Fit and Finish,
Well Done, and Congratulations on the winning the Blanks, you put them to Great Use.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
