    Sage Brush

    On a Gold plated Bolt Action.
    Sanded to 400x, buffed with extra fine steel wool and applied 6 coats of Med CA on a Bolt Action.
    Nice part about Sage Brush is that it is plentiful on the prairies and it's free.

    Looks good Les, but in this case I'd question the background choice. Maybe your usual neutral background so the wood stands out may give a better look at the pen.

    I don't think there's a cowboy on either side of the Rockies who wouldn't like a sagebrush pen. I'll bet those sell very well at the gun shows.
