Default Just made my first hybrid castings. check these out!

These "turned" out way better than I thought.

They are all hybrids with stabilized red box elder (thanks to cactus juice) and alumilite.

The blue silver one is clear alumilite with blue dye with blue pearlex and clear alumilite with antique silver pearlex - approximately 80%/20% mix.

The Black and blue one is clear alumilite with black dye with interference blue pearlex and clear alumilite with blue pearlex - approximately 80%/20% mix.

These are on woodcraft Kojent kits in gunmetal with chrome and gunmetal and cobalt finishes.

Two of my first three roller balls ever and only my 6th hybrid casting to date.
It is finished in 6 coats of CA and polished to high luster.

I love these. They always surprise.

Attractive Pens Nick.
Excellent Blanks, Congratulations on the Casting.
Nicely Turned, Fitted and Finished.
Well Done,
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?
