Tori got inspiration for this blank after she took a trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens one weekend. Flowers are always a good source of color inspiration for our blanks and Tori came home with her phone camera full of new ideas to play with in her color lab. She took inspiration from the tropical flora and succulent house exhibits for this particular blank, combining the gorgeous green and orange of the succulent plants with the deep purple, magenta and teal of tropical flowers to create this unique color combination.

These blanks mix fantastic colors of mica powders with just the perfect amount of glitter. We have always felt other blanks needed more glitter, so Bear Tooth Woods decided to start making our own and we have named this line of blanks "Glitter Swirl." Tori is the master of color and she is bringing you imaginative mixes of colors and glitter in these blanks for your projects.

Our Glitter Alumilite blanks have that butter-smooth turn that you've come to expect from Alumilite, however the glitter does tend to make a mess. Expect to find glitter for a while after you turn. When finishing the glitter blank, we've found that using a CA finish has given us the smoothest finish. If you donít use a CA Finish (we use a few coats of Ultra Thin), you might be able to feel the slightest texture of the glitter on the surface of your turned blank.

Small voids in any Glitter blanks are to be expected. We put a lot of glitter in these blanks and some air bubbles and small tear-outs will occur when turning. We recommend using medium viscosity CA glue to fill these voids while the lathe is turned off. Be absolutely sure the CA glue has FULLY cured before you turn the lathe back on.

These Glitter Alumilite blanks are made in-house here at Bear Tooth Woods. Please feel free to email us with any comments, concerns, suggestions, etc about the glitter blanks.

Example blank finished on an Gunmetal and Chrome Cigar (sold separately). The blank was painted white inside after drilling, though it didn't need to be painted. The pen blank was finished with a few coats of Ultra Thin CA and sanded through 12000.
