Default Casting blanks should come with a warning.

Itís quite possibly more addicting than turning pens. RIP my bank account.

Here are a few from the 4 day weekend.

I like the way you get the you get the separate contrasting colors in the casting. Thanks for sharing.

They look very nice. I feel your pain with a new found addiction.

They look great! I agree and feel your pain. Blank making grabs you and keeps pulling you in. Lol.

I like casting pen blanks. It's different from the stuff I used to cast as a day job.
My problem is that I don't make the pens any more and don't have an outlet for the blanks I was making. I still have a few hundred (just an estimate, could be more) blanks stuffed in a box.

I did make some larger slab blanks and made some grips from most of those. After close to a hundred sets of grips, I haven't had anyone contact me about any for some time.
