Default Flower Pens

Bought these blocks off Etsy. Well crafted and not too bad to turn.

Both are CA finish.

Chrysanthemum and Lavender. Instead of reverse painting the tubes, I dyed the glue bright red and bright purple; it worked.

Great Pens Stephen,
Love the Colour of the Chrysanthemum Blank.
What did you Pigment the Glue with?
Was it a Casting Pigment?
And did you use Epoxy Adhesive?
The Lavender is not as Stunning as the Chrysanthemum, but is Still Beautiful.
Great Work,
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?

Nice effect with the dye! Makes a really interesting blank.
