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.
Honeycomb blanks measure 13/16"+ x 5"+. The Aluminum Honeycomb blanks tend to chip a little easier than normal if you turn too aggressive because of the honeycomb inside of the Alumilite. The vendor soaks the honeycomb in acetone so it will bind to the Alumilite better, but he recommends you turn these blanks at a higher speed than normal and says it is best to take small cuts.
The vendor lives here in Colorado Springs and is immensely proud that his blanks will say “Made in the USA.”
The blank is Electric – the colors in this blank with the Honeycomb really give you a charge. Electric Lizard doesn’t come across as transparent, but the vendor still recommends painting the inside of this blank as it gets more transparent as it gets turned down.
Electric Lizard is made with Alumilite resin mixed with Blue, Green, Purple, and Burgundy and the wonderful Aluminum Honeycomb is added. There is also some sparkle in the form of glitter in each blank.
The vendor uses easy to turn pigments to help turners as he is one of you. He highly recommends using a CA finish on his blanks as he has found it to be the best finish he has tried, and he now uses it exclusively on his own pens. He uses 3 coats of thin then 3 coats of medium with no sanding in between. He wet sands with Zona paper then polishes with Turtle Wax.
