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.”
With all the bright colors in this blank, pulling the cord on one of those Party Poppers at a Birthday Party comes to mind. The colors also made us happy. It is a gorgeous blank that would be nice to carry around as a pen to use all the time to keep yourself happy. The vendor says he believes on this blank you would not have to paint the inside of the blank, but always use your own experience and knowledge.
Party Popper is made with Alumilite resin mixed with Yellow, Green, Purple, and Pink 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.
