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.
Cholla Cactus blanks measure 3/4"+ x 5"+.
The vendor lives here in Colorado Springs and is immensely proud that his blanks will say “Made in the USA.”
Magical Orchid comes across very purple with flashes of other colors that are just magical. Magical Orchid is made with Alumilite resin mixed with Black Pearl, Green, Purple, and Blue and the skeletal Cholla Cactus is added. There is also some sparkle in the form of glitter in each blank.
Tori turned the blank shown in the picture below and she said the blank really surprised her and it is now one of her favorite blanks she has turned. “The Alumilite Resin and Cholla cactus seamlessly blended for one of the smoothest turns I've ever had on a lathe. It was almost like it magically melted into the perfect shape on the tube.” Tori is new to turning, but that is still high praise. The blank pictured below was painted a metallic dark blue and she finished the blank with CA and a micromesh up to 12000.
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.
