Slimline in olive with turquoise inlay.




Just a tip. Different woods need different burn times depending on the hardness. If I know I am going to engrave a finished pen, I do a trial burn on the blank that I am going to turn the pen from before turning it. That way I can try a couple of different fonts, burn times, etc. and when the pen is done I know exactly what settings to use. Also pay attention to fonts. Some fonts, for example have a very narrow upper case "J" that doesn't burn very well. If I have a "John" to burn, I change to a font with a better formed upper case J.

What did you fill the burn with to make it yellow?

I used yellow acrylic paint and gold pearl ex powder, I had 2 coats of thin ca on it before burning so just rubbed the paint in and wiped it off, it stayed in the burn.
