Default Spalted Poplar Panache

Tomorrow is my two year anniversary here on IAP, my how the time has flown by. At the time I had no clue what an adventure I was embarking on. I really appreciate everyone here helping me grow my skills to where I am today. But don't go anywhere, I still have a ton to learn!

Here is my latest pen, a Black Chrome Panache in Spalted Poplar. The wood was part of my 2018 Super Bowl pool winnings from RHoliday. It looks like the blank was part of a 2017 Bash BOB as the blank was marked "2017 Bash Jsolie". Not sure where it was before that. I stabilized with CJ using my pickle jar setup. I hope I did you guys proud with this one. I'm especially happy with the alignment of the spalt lines - not the most amazing achievement but something I've failed at more than once.

Have always loved the potential of the Panache: with the spalting it really does make for a striking pen. How did you finish it?

I agree with you for sure, the size, shape, and absence of a clip definitely invites creativity. I finished with CA, about 6 coats of BSI thin, then sand and micromesh, then Hut ultrashine.

Thanks Wayne! It's the Rollerball. I was expecting the black Chrome to be more like gun metal, and the gold tip is a little different, but I'm happy with it in the end...

Beautiful pen and I agree, you did a great job lining up the spalt lines. I really like the looks of the Panache and it’s one you don’t see a lot of.

Well done. An interesting kit with the perfect blank to match the patterns, which you nailed.

Thanks for sharing.
