Hello All
A few week ago Ed (ed4copies) at Exotic Blanks sent me this blank Exotic Blanks :: Pen Blanks :: Italian & High-end Resins :: Madrepearlato - Blue Hydrangea. along with my order, thank you so much Ed I hope I did the blank justice. I got a chance to turn it this morning and paired it up with a gold cigar kit. This is a beautiful blank deep blue with metallic blue mixed in. The photo's really don't show the real beauty of the blank. All C&C welcome.

Thank you Leslie and Leslie for your kind words, this blank was like opening a Christmas gift I was really surprised as to what was inside.

Hi Dan,

It looks nice - and the color of the blank goes really well with the gold finish on the pen (I seem to have a hard time matching a blank to a gold pen).

Really nice job, Dan!! The madreperlato has always been one of my favorite blanks--kind of a subtle pearl, until the light hits it.

Looks great with the gold fittings!!

Thanks for showing!
Ed

Thanks so much Dave, Kelly, Cam, Ed , Don W and Ronnie for your great comments. Dave just about any thing will go with gold as long as the does not bland in with the gold. Ed thanks so much for the blank it was a joy to turn and finish.

Dan, I just did one of these, also from Ed, and I love it, I ordered some more last night. Mine was the burgundy color and, like you, I had difficulty photographing it. It looks so much nicer in person. Here are some pics of the Princess pen in Madreperleto Burgandy:

Thanks a lot Eric and Andy for your comments. Evelyn really likes the blank and want me to do one in green. She likes 7mm style pen and I wonder how those blanks would look on a that type of pen.
