This was my entry to the 2017 Birthday Bash Advanced Kit Contest.

I casted the blank in alumilite using apple green pearl ex powder. The kit is a baron. I closed both ends but kept the clip by using a tap and die on the top. I cut a tenon and threaded the cap portion to accept the clip, then I tapped another piece and turned them down to the same dimension as the band of the clip.
This was my first time doing this and I am very happy with the result. I'm still working on my kitless design and I hope to incorporate it in the near future. I am definitely interested in how people make their own clips- so if anybody has any tips/tutorials- shoot em my way!

Thanks for looking! I appreciate comments and criticism.
