    Feathers and Flies

    PR Cast Mallard Flank Feathers and Tied Fly on a Black Titanium/Platinum Elegant Beauty.

    PR Cast Ringneck Pheasant Feathers and Tied Flies on a Black Titanium / Titanium Gold Elegant Beauty.

    I painted tubes with Testors #1258 Flat White Spray Enamel, attached feathers and tied flies and cast in Polyester Resin using Resin Saver Molds.
    Turned, sanded to 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool and polished with Hut Ultra Gloss.

    Thanks Frank for some of the tied flies!!

    Same here. I guess I haven't been keeping up with things.

    These are awesome pens, Les. I've got a brother-in-law who would love something like that.
