Default Steam Punk Watch Pen

My wife's Mom passed away almost a year ago; in her dresser drawer were some worn out inexpensive watches. In memory of her, I cast a some pens for my wife and her siblings.

They look great Steve. How did you prepare the tubes before affixing the watch parts?

The tubes were powder coated black; the glue, resin, and wiping with acetone does not seem lift the coating
