    Another bunch of Maple Leafs



    These are called Elegant Beauty Sierra twist BP pens. All are spoken for! They show off the Canadian flag in all it's glory!



    These 3 are going to a Craft Show with me this Saturday. I hope they don't come home with me!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Those look great, Mack. I'm guessing you won't have the extra three for long. How do you keep the colors from bleeding when you sand them?

    How do you keep the colors from bleeding when you sand them?
    Hand sanding (if sanding is required) very very carefully.

    I try to limit the sanding to the red parts only (not including the leaf, of course).

    The little bit of red dust has a tendency of getting all over the blank. I brush it off as best as I can. A quick rag wipe of Isopropyl 99% alcohol gets rid of most of it. Then on to the BLO/CA finishing!

    Don't recall seeing it. Maybe it was shown before my arrival ... or my remembering cells were a little too frozen from the ride.
