Here are a few rattle snake pens. I tried a new casting technique with them. When cast in a flat mold, you have to secure them somehow from floating.(which for me was a pain) I cast these using an embedded method and a two part pour. I let the first pour set up, then gently placed the barrels in pressing them into the first pour just enough to hold them, then poured a secound batch of resin in. There is no visable line between the pours and turning is not a problem. Thanks for looking.....

Great looking pens. When I read about all the fun you have pouring resin, I am always glad that I do not have any free time to try it.

AWSOME pens Anthony. Thanks for the info. I'm not ready to try my own castings yet but I will be in the near future. I only hope mine come out half as nice as yours have.

SSSSSizzling pens. Do you kill your own snakes or simply order your skins? If you kill them, do you make snake soup or some other delicacy with it the meat. [:p]

Nice looking pens Anthony. Now let me show my ignorance. Is the snake skin glued to the brass tubes or what? Just curious, may have to try it sometime.

Very nicely done! I would have thought you would have gotten a tell tale line from the two pours. Glad to hear it doesnt happen. Very beautiful snake skin. What kind is it? Great job on those.

Thanks for the comments....

JP , my motto is still, I haven't met a rattle snake I liked. [xx(] At least now I have a use for them, as long as I find them, before they find me.

Sam, the skins glued to the brass tube with CA, then placed in the mold. I use base wax to seal the ends.

Sorry Pastor Bill, you won't find any snakes in my crock pot [:D] I throw them over the hill so the other critters can have any easy meal for a change.[B)]

Anthony, great looking pens I really like rattlesnake pens and those are the best I've seen. Very nice. I wish I could do castings myself but I don't even know where to beging. Great job!

Anthony, those look fantastic to say the least! Have you ever made a bullet pen using the snake skin? Seems like it would be a big seller in your area. Anyway, thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!
