I made a high end pen with an Opal FX blank from JohnU and an artist at the Gallery commissioned this pen. She is happy.

Careful with Sierra thin wall as the opalescent foil has texture that might be taller than the size to match the kit. You folks that like oval turnings might be ok except at the ends. This one is for a woman who wanted as thin as possible.

By the way blanks by John U or Underhill are by far the easiest to turn and polish. IMO he knows how to mix and pour alumilite perfectly. I’ve bought several people’s blanks and his shine above the rest. PS I buy his stuff at full price.
