Talking Thank You Wood-N-Whimsies

I used the Gift Certificate I won from Wood-N-Whimsies, during the Birthday Bash, to buy a couple Resin Miser molds.

I poured up my first set of pen blanks yesterday evening. These are variations on the Sewing Themed pen I did for the casting contest In the 2013 Birthday Bash. I cast that pen in an old prescription bottle. I am looking forward to giving these a spin.

Thanks Wood-N-Whimsies!!!

BTW: Why do I feel like I've just stepped onto a black hole of pen making?

You've just stepped onto a slippery slope..

You won't be able to look at things without wondering how thick it is, and will it fit between the Sierra tube and bushings, or would you need a Grande kit.

Welcome to the "Dark Side"

You will soon develop a completely different outlook on life. You will wonder "how would that look cast in resin?" for everything.
