    Sierra Elegant Beauty

    Black Titanium and Platinum Ballpoint completed with shredded Canadian Five Dollar pen blank.

    Painted inside of the blank and the tube with Black Hi Temperature BBQ paint that has a Mat finish.

    For the next one I will paint the blank and tube with silver/grey mat finish paint to see how it compare to the black.

    Finished with 6 coats of Medium CA Only and polished with Huts Ultra Gloss.

    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    Les

    Did you make the blank yourself? That's just stunning!

    That's another nice-looking kit I'd not noticed before. I'll have to look it up.

    And the finished pen? Spotless as always.
