Default Purse Pens

Finally got around to making some pens I hope will be liked buy (pun intended) women. These are Artisan Coventry kits from CSUSA in chrome. Thanks to Ed & Dawn at www.exoticblanks.com for the Appeltini and Hawaiian Hibiscus.

The cherry is finished with WTF sanded between coats with 6000 MM. The acrylics are wet sanded with MM pads to 12000.

The acrylic pens have two photos because when I took the first the gap between the cap and blank became apparent. The second photo of each shows the result after I beveled the inside of the cap with a hand countersink.

Thanks for looking. C&C helps me learn so fire away.

Ahh, the countersink... it's saved my tail more than once.

I'm guessing that reverse painting was pretty much mandatory on a pen that is this 'slim'.... Nicely done on all!!!!

Scott,

Yes, I forgot to mention the painting. Both acrylics were inside and tube painted with white acrlic model paint.

Thanks for compliment.
