I know this is actually avoiding the casting question but here is another "possible" solution.

CA glue the hide down to a piece of scrap wood. Don't cast. Take the hide and use the plug cutter as you were planning. Drill your hole for the plug but don't fill it until after you have turned the blank to size. Now fill the hole with the hide and hair. It will still be furry, but that would be more interesting in my mind. (I can't say in my eye cause I haven't seen either yet)

Just another thought...

Do show the pen when you get it done.

Interesting idea ---- texture on a pen......

I was waiting for a Michaels coupon for the resin, but I'll give this some thought in the meantime.

I like that idea, hair on the pen. Maybe in the center like on a sierra so the ends are still hard and able to function the pen without the hair getting in the way.
