Poured a block (liquid diamonds resin) a while ago using a friend's favorite sport team colors, the (ballpoint) pen became her favorite ever and I was left with a few extra blanks. At that time I was experimenting with pouring methods and that block came out quite wild with good color separation and swirling.
So here's the next iteration, a fountain pen with a black oxide Jowo #6 nib. Threads are my usual M13x0.8T and M10x1.
It needs some more TLC to finalize, I'm debating between high gloss and satin finish.
C & C welcome.

Well done Fred! And nice pour. I guess you did in on purpose, but is it not a bit confusing not to know at first sight which part is the cap and which is the barrel when the pen is closed?

Thanks Pierre!
Is your question a subtle way to suggest that a clip would help to distinguish body and cap? šŸ˜… Yes Sir, I'm working on my clip designs, trial and error process, not ready for prime time yet (saving the splash for the 2023 BASH maybe?).
That said, though it might not show up in the pictures, there is a 0.4mm difference in the cap and body diameter where they meet, easily noticeable by touch.
