I have been having fun experimenting with cardstock for segmenting. Each stripe is 9 layers 3 of each color then flooded with thin CA to polymerize the paper.
I really like the way that the colors pop more than a veneer and the color choices are endless. Comments welcome, thanks for looking.

What kind of paper. I've tried construction paper and it all seems to turn to mud.

It's called cardstock, I get it at Michael's. They have an entire aisle full. It's the thickness of a greeting card.

Very nicely done !!!

Is that a Devin pen kit ?
Thank you, yes it is the Devin kit. I bought the 4 pack and it's a really decent kit for a classic styled clicker.

OK, I'm running out to Michael's as soon as I finish typing this. That is one great pen and I predict we'll be seeing a lot of pens made using your technique. Many thanks for sharing.

I was in both Michaels and Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago specifically looking at card stock with the same purpose in mind. Looks great!

I was looking to make up layers to look like "Fordite". If you are not familiar with that term, search for it on this forum. I would bet this opens up a whole 'nuther type of pen blanks that we have not yet seen!

Go to Lowes and get a wood strip for roofing tin closures https://www.lowes.com/pd/Sequentia-Wood-Solid-Roof-Panel-Closure-Strip/3010420
Cover 2 1 foot long pieces with plastic wrap, grocery store plastic bag, start gluing up strips of different colored construction paper just keep stacking. and clamp it overnight. Or cut a blank lengthwise in a curvy shape, then glue and clamp multiple layers between the 2 pieces.
