Title IAP Collection - Pen #51

Maker Gerry Rhoades (gerryr)

Components NA
Tools / Machinery Used NA
Process After drilling the holes I wrapped sandpaper around a steel rod and polished the holes. I painted the inside of the acrylic with some color-shifting paint I found in the hobby store where I buy my CA glue and epoxy. I think I gave three coats of paint so bubbles in the epoxy wouldn't be visible.
Maker's Comments It took me three tries to perfect the technique so the bubbles in the epoxy were not visible. These pens were very popular with customers.
