THere should be at least one of the finished pen but the other two can be close ups of the blanks and some of the pen or the whole pen from different angles.

I hear the sound of Tumbleweeds drifting across a barren landscape as the sun sets behind a wood turners shop. Is that muttering that breaks the silence? Is it the low guttural growl of a caged Artist striving to break free? Is that muttering directed at a failed casting experiment? Will there be an Amen! Will it be Eureka! or the sound of sobbing and a choice word or two.

Im not sure but if you dont get something done soon it will be crying over spilt milk I hear. The deadline is drawing near.

I was going to enter until I found out I was a prize donor. Third place will include a blank of what I was going to enter. :)

:biggrin: No fear. I'm happy to give back to the IAP.

Chicken would be bowing out of the kitless with the ummm... effort... I'm trying.

I'm thinking about getting some Alumilite tomorrow, but I've never casted before so I have no idea what to expect ... not sure I should just jump into casting just to enter a competition.

But ... would it count if I made a blank using polyclay???

What better reason not to?

Not enough cash... :(

I get paid today, but I'm buying a 7-inch wet-cut saw and 20+ pounds of alabaster .... :)


I guess a polyclay pen blank won't count, eh?

If it wasnt so late in the contest I would have allowed it. But with less than a week to go it might not be fair to others that could have made one that chose to cast instead. Next year I will add it to the mix.
