Price is per blank. The blanks shown are representative of the blank you will receive, but are not necessarily the exact blank you will receive.

Blanks measure 3/4"+ x 5"+.

Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a limited run Halloween blank that will be available only between September 22 - October 13, 2020. Any blanks on the shelf after October 13th will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after the 13th.

Tori went a little crazy with the different glitters in this blank, but what else do you expect at the Witching Hour? We think she was having a lot of fun over her cauldron mixing different Halloween brews for you. This blank sparkles and shines - let a little of the blank's black magic make your project come alive.

The glitter has been cast in a clear Alumilite base, Violet Mica powders along with a Black Star, Silver, Wild Orchid, and special Ahoy glitters. There is some translucency to these blanks and when turned to the thinner dimensions of a finished pen, you will definitely notice. Because of this, we recommend painting the interior of the blank after drilling. You can paint the inside of the blank any color you want. The color you choose will really impact the final appearance though.

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 Super Thin), you can 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. We are starting small and only have the molds to make 3/4" x 5" pen blanks, but we have plans to expand if the demand is there from our customers, so let us know. Comments, compliments for Tori, tips, suggestions, complaints, etc. are all appreciated.
