Definitely looks like it was worth all the effort.. Perfectly paired with the Steampunk kit.

I dont know if you can make this work for your design but I mounted a bolt in the top of a jar lid and using delrin cones on each end of the tube on the bolt or threaded rod I can then coat the tube with superglue, put glitter in the jar, put the lid on and shake it until the glue is well covered. I never got that much glitter on the table doing that.

Very lovely !! . Too bad the blanks won't go on sale ... maybe try again with Gary's technique of glitter containment and conservation ???

Glitter, don't get me started on glitter. I've done a few hundred glitter blanks and have to segregate the casting materials into glitter and non-glitter. Few things are more frustrating than casting a special blank and finding there is 1 piece of glitter winking at you from a strategic area.

Nice pens. The left on is my favorite.

When I was making a banksia pod pen with glitter, I used glitter glue instead of loose glitter. Worked fine.
