Update Nov 30th. We are shipping orders within 1 day. USPS delivery times for domestic orders Are already starting to lengthen with the holiday glut and issues from COVID-19. We HIGHLY recommend ordering as soon as possible.

International orders are still slow at this time. Most taking over 4 weeks to arrive. Please inquire about UPS shipping. It is not available as an option through the website but is available. It is about the same price as USPS for shipping of mixed kit and blank orders. But it is more expensive if you are ordering just blanks. However UPS shipments are arriving within about a week at this time.

December Disco Alumilite Glitter Pen Blank - Winter Limited Edition

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-edition Winter blank that will only be available between October 20 - November 17, 2020. Any blanks on the shelf after November 17th will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after the 17th. Some of the glitter used in the blanks is extremely limited. There is the possibility if the blank is immensely popular that we might be unable to procure additional glitter and therefore be unable to continue making the blank through to November 17th. If this happens, we will unfortunately have to call the blank SOLD OUT early.

Depending on your age, do you remember roller skating at the Roller Rink? The light that would hit the Disco Ball lighting up the entire wood floor. It was cool when the light was white, but we loved it when they changed the colors, and we could skate in the dark with some colored sparkles coming from the Disco Ball. It was even better in December because we were out of school.

The micas and glitter have been cast in a clear Alumilite base. The Royal Purple and Sapphire Blue mica powders have been added to Holographic Snowflakes and an Opal Glitter.

There is a lot of translucency in these blanks and when turned to the thinner dimensions of a finished pen, you will definitely notice. Based on the translucency of this blank, we recommend it for non-tubed projects (i.e. Diamond Painting Pen). However, if you chose to use it for a tubed project, 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, tips, suggestions, complaints, etc. are all appreciated.

Blank sanded thru 12000 grit on 2 Sierra Vista Tubes - the insides of the blanks were painted Rose Gold.  The paint is very visable through the translucent areas of the blank.
