Something new and interesting. Another sculpted pen. :) This was so much fun to make. My wife named it the Prospector. Nothing to do with digging up gold really, but the name has other significance to us. smile emoticon Hope you like it. (And no, I don't supply these nibs in my pens- this one is supplied by the customer.)

And the Breaker (not sure if I've shared this here or not, yet).

Those look really good. I'm sure it's been asked and answered before, but I've not encountered either the question or answer. How are those made? Is the material something along the lines of Sculpty? How does it hold up over time?

It's orange ebonite that I turned round as usual and sculpted with a hand file. The black one was done in a similar fashion but used some round wheels to help shape the wave. :)

A few thoughts I have:

Impressive!!!! Superb!!! I love them!! Very well done. Those look really good. Those are really nice.

Amazing how my thoughts meld with those of others here on IAP. They just thought them sooner!!:wink::rolleyes:

Will you mention the main tools you use for the sculpting phase of your work. These pens are very special, and I want to develop a sculpting ability. I aspire to do what I see so well displayed by your work. There are already ideas rumbling around in the creative portion of my brain, triggered by what I see here! :):)
