Default TransTint

I usually paint the tubes or the blank when using acrylic blanks. Has anyone every tried using TransTint on the inside of the blank instead of paint? Just curious before I give it a try.

Please try and let us know. Still a novice at this but Iím in kind of a love/hate relationship with regards to painting the insides as I learn the process.

The other issue which is more difficult to overcome with thin-walled pens is trying to hide or minimize the rifling markingsleft by the drill bit.

I don't think Trans Tint contains a binder. If not, a bit of water or alcohol and the tint would become liquid again.

I usually paint the inside of the blank. White brightens the color; Black dulls/mutes the color. On a white blank, you can color the blank with any color you want. White Aquapearl works well for this.
