I've been scared of this process for some reason. I think I bought the stuff 6 months ago...
For some reason I was inspired this weekend and made these

I took the plainest blank (center) and turned this:

I'm pretty happy that I finally took the plunge.

Good cast. The fact that it was your first is even better. Soon you'll find yourself with more cast blanks than you know what to do with.

Only your second picture is showing up for me. The first one doesn't show for some reason.

That's a great 1st cast. I still have the pen from my 1st cast, and another blank somewhere if I can find it. But casting can be as addictive as turning. So hang on . . . . . . . (to your wallet):rolleyes:.

A caster that helped me get started told me it would take a gallon till I felt comfortable casting. And that was about right for me. You look to be a little ahead of the game. :good:

Oh, you really don't know how light that wallet is going to get. But, just think of the fun and interesting blanks you will make and unusual pens you can sell to make some of that $$ back.
