Real copper braid attached to a PSI Steampunk pen kit tube and cast in polyester resin. Price is for one tube. The polyester resin turns easily and takes a beautiful shine.
If you wet sand when you finish, please be sure to seal the ends of the blanks with thin CA. Otherwise the water can get into the copper braid and turn it green. For best long term results you may want to seal the ends of the blanks even if you do not use a wet sanding technique.
