Two more Pens

A Lucida pen kit on a home cast blank which I did not expect to turn out that good so was surprised at the colours.

This one unfortunately is going to be scrapped when i was assembling it I did not pay attention and one of the components slightly twisted and split the blank, but I thought I would still show it anyway.
Again this was on a home cast blank.

Thanks for sharing Derek. I like the blanks, probably prefer the bottom one, both blank and pen kit. I don't personally like that top pen kit much at all, but the blank is nice.

You still using that same technique you linked to the video of a while ago to make them?

Thank you both. Hopefully might get around to casting some more soon.

Just to show there is diversity in the world, 100% opposite, not that keen on the bottom kit and prefer the look of the top blank as well, lol.

Nice work as ever.

Thank you Terry. That is one thing in this hobby if we were all the same then everyone would be making the same things.
