This is one of the ULL resin cast runs that I did for BrentK to go with the LSU purple and gold.

Messed around with beadwork again...got dangerously close to the tube on the pen side bead, letting a little too much of the white epoxy show through at the narrow point...overturned it a little too much there, I wish it matched the cap better. Beads are a little different size, too. I'm learning, and overall I'm having a really good time with the resins and beads, wish I'd have been doing it sooner! :)

Thank God for buffing wheels, that's become a fairly significant step in my pen making process. Simple and easy way to polish a high gloss on there without a lot of sandpaper work.

Chrome FT American fountain from Ernie at Bear Tooth Woods, MM12000, white diamond polish, Ren wax finish.

I do like the shape. I think it's a fine looking pen. You must be a couple of centimeters away from the tube on the lower barrel.[:0] The blank looks great with dark red, black and white marbling.

Nice looking pen!

Just a thought, why the extensive use of acronyms in this (and other) forum?
LSU, ULL, you got me beat!

It is almost like a masons' secret handshake, let's use acronyms so that we can separate those that "belong" from those that don't.

Maybe it is just me?

Tim, there are 2.54 centimeters to an inch. Are you trying to pick a fight with Karl?!?? :D:D[}:)];)

Well I did ask.........:)

However, now that I know what the acronyms stand for, what do 2 university have to do with cast resin?

This series of resin casts are for an order, and as I made extra blanks, I just felt like turning some pens out of a few of them. I posted the other ones as well, it's a series of 4 resin color combinations for the two schools. :)

Thank you gentlemen, not that obvious to us foreigners, but that explains it very nicely.

Now if you had said these pens are for Carlton or Essendon, I would have understood straight away!:D
