Default Popsicle Stick Pen

When it comes to pens, if you don't try it you will never know how it will look. I decided to try and make a pen out of colored Popsicle sticks. So with a 5 dollar investment I headed home and glued up a blank. I was not sure how it would turn out and worried that the colors would run when I finished it. The glue up job was a bit of a mess. It has sort of a Popsicle stick stained glass look to it.

I love it!!! Now the next Mission Impossible, layer each at 45 degree angles to each other. Or buy some dye and dye your own, this way you can create your own color schemes. To dye them, if you use a vacuum tank and you will get deeper color penetration.

Success! I am wondering about a herringbone type with the sticks. There are so many possibilities. Maybe some colored toothpicks in there as well? Keep up the good work!
