Doing shows every week makes it hard to get restocked much less get any casting done. I poured this yesterday with the 4 blanks I sold here last night. This pens has over a 100 watch parts in it. Turned super nice----you folks who bought my blanks yesterday are going to be very happy. The second pic is shot with sunlight---1st one is in a tent.

That came out beautiful!! Did you paint the tube? If so, what kind of paint that the CA won't make it come off?

You have to walk past the 99 cent paint ----I buy the stuff that's $6.00 plus a can-----works a lot better than the cheap stuff. Oh---letting it set up and dry overnight helps a bunch also.

Thanks for the paint price but I think we wish to know the brand name of the paint.


I think any brand of good paint would do the trick----I am using Rust-oleum but Krylon would work just as well if you buy the higher end cans.
I paint them 20 or so at a time so they are on hand when I need one.
