I have been asked by a friend for a cigar pen. Essentially a Elega Sierra with a leaf wrapped around tube, the band over it, then cast. The question I have is how to secure and then protect the leaf without damaging it. I looking for gluing advice and then protection from the Alumilite.

Thanks in advance!

Good question. I've been playing with cigar leaves so quite a while now and it's been hit and miss with way more misses than hits. Someone posted a video here a while back and he used mod podge and pr. resin. Mod podge has never worked for me. It's been done but I don't know what their failure rate is or all the steps they use. I know this doesn't help much. Good Luck.
