Hi folks, here are a couple of Ligero`s and an El Grande I finished today, thought I would share them with my IAP family.

First is a Redwood Burl with chrome hardware, CA finish.
Second pen is dyed Box Elder Burl with chrome hardware, CA finish.
Third is an ElMostro blank with titanium gold hardware, CA finish again.

Thanks for looking at my work, comments very welcome! :)

Great looking pens with great looking finishes. I'm just starting to learn CA finishing, I hope I can get half as good as yours....

Wow, amazing as usual mark!

Have to say the 1st one is my favourite as I like the natural woods!

Cant believe you get photos that good with no photo tent, just natural light! Ive tried mine like it, but don get the clarity you have! Although your finish is better than mine, that must be it! hah!

Wow! Those are incredible. Gives me inspiration to keep going in the hopes I can someday make art like that.

Like David, I'm wondering how many coats it takes to get that finish.

Any CA tips from an expert to a beginner?

Incredible work.

The finish on those pens is amazing. How many coats of CA did you use?

David I use approx 5 - 6 coats of CA depending on the wood, first coat is THIN CA and the rest are MEDIUM CA.

Thanks to everyone for the kind positive comments, these are really appreciated and are what keeps me making pens! :)

The red one takes my heart of course but that BLUE ONE is striking how it mingles with the mocha colors........reminds me of holding up a piece of wood against the sunny sky. Wonderful finish....someday I'll learn that.....Cinder_LadyLocket
