Default Valentines Day Mistral Pen

I made a beautiful pen using a pen blank from Toni Ransfield at Clay Pen Blanks. I also used a Mistral Rollerball pen kit that I bought at Turnerís Warehouse. My experience with both venders was top notch.

I applied about 15 coats of Stick Fast Thin CA and about 5 coats of Stick Fast Medium CA. I sanded with 600 grit sand paper and Micro-Mesh Abrasive Pads. I applied Novus 3, Novus 2, and Novus 1 Plastic Polish. This pen will be a gift for my wife. I couldnít be happier.

Please Find my YouTube video where I made the pen here:

I spoke with Toni Ransfield today, and I want to pass on some info from her. She does not recommend using Stick Fast CA on her blanks. Stick Fast is known to create a Shattered Glass Effect. I have not experienced this, but this is not the first time I have heard this. I am in the process of converting to Mercury Flex. I just received my shipment so there was no way I was going to experiment with it on one of her blanks. Toni Recommends BSI Super Gold Medium. And, if it is good enough for her, I will be getting some ASAP. Thank you Toni.

Spectacular Pen Todd,
Incredible Blanks from Toni.
Enjoyed your Video Todd.
Nice Finish.
Congratulations to Both.
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?
