Default Red and Purple Streak Minicone Manhattan Click

I was going for a new color with the minicones and ended up with this. It is based in red with blue mixed in. I was attempting a solid purple, but this little beauty came out. I took the close up to really show the purple iridesence. Back painted with purple as well.

This is my first time trying out the Manhattan click. I like the initial feel of this pen. Comments and suggestions appreciated.

I like the wine color of the resin with a touch of purple in it. Of course I like the pine cones. The pen is descent but the clip is cheesy and of the 6 I purchased I have not sold one yet.

Thank you. We will see how the Manhattan does from here. I only picked up three of them. We get asked about click pens so much. I had flyover this one a try.

These cones from Eastern Red Cedars? Or maybe some kind of spruce? Just wondering cause they are so small.....

Also, do you need to use pressure to get the resin into the cones?





As for the turnings...
Love the color combo with the cones!
Shined up really nice!
Tad large on the hardware, but I think you might have done that one purpose to keep as much of that really nice blank to show off!

Give it an rock solid "A" all around!!!






Scott (cones is cool) B

The cones are from the Australian Pine. I cast under pressure and have increased the pressure more recently causing more resin to get in the cones. Thanks!

Fantastic Eric. It is like wood you never know what will come out and hit you. I hope to see that one in person, bring it along.

Looks good Eric! I like the colors. What PSI are you casting these at? That is if you don't mind answering. I cast some for your transformation pen at 40psi and got some penetration, but I wasn't going any higher with the pressure pot I have.

Awesome job, Eric.
The pine cones actually make it look like fossilized sea life in the pen. Very cool!

Nice.

I'll bet that's something else in person.
