Hello, friends :) I am from Russia. I want to say in advance - TNANK YOU - for every person, who share their experience with all this community. Several years ago we start making some inks for fountain pens. later we start making nib holders, both versions - straight and obliques ones. We use different kinds of wood for them. But at our local market we have no such wide choice of resins, especially i feel lack of availability for Alumilite's resins. At current moment we work with epoxy resin - it is very sensitive to heat. I mean - when i am turning in on lathe or dry sanding (using the same lathe) it becames quite flexible and starts wobbling during rotation on lathe. But anyway - we are learning and make a lot of test and trials.

Here is our works, all of them and other are available on our Instagram.

Welcome Antony.

Those are some beautiful holder designs. I have never been able to quite get the hang of shaping the ergonomic holders.
I’m looking forward to seeing more of your work.

We will try to reproduce in resin some of our wood designs from most popular oblique holders. We looking the information of making ribbon blanks, but some details of this process is still missoing. We need more to experiment with it ))

Now we are decorating brass flange, that holds the nib itself. Such ornament give a special look to the holder and add additional +1000 points to creativity )))) We use fiber laser for such engravings.

We use satin ribbons here. At first - we stabilize them with resin, then put them inside mold and add crystal clear resin.
