Default Entry 1

Super Mario themed pen. The colors are lightened from the original game to contrast the sierra components. I made the design on Photoshop, and printed it out on sticker paper.

Default Entry 2

The pen kit is a full size Majestic in 22k Gold and Rhodium. The blank is a modified watch parts. I start with painting the tube, adding the carbon fiber and letting it dry. Then Cut and drilled pieces of Tru-Stone Red JAsper with Gold Veins and slip it over the carbon fiber. Glue on all the watch parts and then cast as normal with epoxy. Turn, polish and assemble.

Default Entry 4

The pen is made around a set of Baron Chrome Fountain pen components. The blanks are made from a combination of Dress Making Pins, Carbon Fibre and Watch Parts. The pins had the head and points removed and the ends ground flat. They are then stuck to the tubes with CA. Each length down the body is made from 3 pieces. The body has a section of Carbon Fibre inlay which is made from a piece of sleeve that I cut open and stiffened by covering in thin CA before cutting and sanding to final width. The cap was first covered with Carbon Fibre sleeve and flooded with CA. A section was then turned off and further Dress Making pins applied. Watch Parts are then bent and stuck in place before casting in Tube On Moulds in Clear PR. Turned to size, sanded with Micromesh and 3 stage polishing applied using a scratch remover, polish and then a final wax is applied.

Default Entry 7

This is a 1960's Spiderman Comic clip that was cast in PR. Careful steps were taken to attach to the tube and seal it to prevent the resin from bleeding through the paper as well as drawing the ink out.
