Default Green and silver

This is a fountain pen I made over the weekend. It’s made from some translucent green/silver flake alumilite I poured. The bands and clip are made from 304 stainless steel. I’m pretty jazzed about how this turned out. I had been kicking around the idea for it for a while, but hadn’t gotten a chance to try it. The pen is about 5.25” long when capped, and has 14mm diameter cap threads. It’s the perfect size to me, and just barely fits a full size converter in it. The nib is a jowo #6

Awesome wouldn't describe it. Outstanding!
