I started playing around with bronze casting again, this weekend. I got this new "transparent bronze" color acrylic, so I figured I should pair it with bronze hardware. I carved the clip and overlay from wax, and then cast them in bronze. I spent hours carving the overlay to minimize post-casting cleanup, however it still required a bit of sculpting and cleanup. The pen's about 5.25" long. I cut triple lead threads for the cap, and since the overlay has the scallops spaced 120 degrees apart, the clip lines up with a scallop no matter how you put the cap on. It uses a jowo 6 nib. Rose gold plating would probably match better, however I don't have any on me, so I had to use a stock gold plated nib.
