    Casting Christmas Colors

    For up coming craft shows.
    RE Pen Blanks using pen turning wood shavings.
    The green is Green Dyed Curly Maple, the red is Bloodwood and the Red and Green is a mixture of Green Dyed Curly Maple and the Bloodwood.

    All cast using Polyester resin and Resin Saver mold.


    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Those look fun Les. How do you attach the shavings to the barrel and what color paint do you use for barrel? Same for feathers too?
