Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a limited-edition Valentine's blank that will only be available January 13th - February 10th, 2021. Any blanks on the shelf after February 10th will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after the 10th of February. Some of the glitter used in the blanks is extremely limited, but we believe we have procured enough for the entire run.
We are always on the lookout for gorgeous glitters to create amazing blanks for you on our way to Glitter Pen Blank World Domination :-). Robin found this super cute heart glitter mix and it reminded Tori of those bags of Candy Hearts with little sayings written on them so she knew she wanted to create a blank with that in mind. The Pink-Dyed Resin and Bright Mint glitter really gave this glitter mix that “candy” look - although she wouldn’t recommend trying to eat it :)
This blank is completely transparent. If you are going to use it for a tubed kit, we would recommend painting the inside of the blank and/or the tube, but as always, the creative choice is up to you. Though, we don't recommend this blank for tubed kits as sometimes there are bare spots in the glitter (see the bottom tube in the finished tube photo). These bare spots show up more drastically when used on a tubed kit. As always, this is our recommendation. We have shown you the reason why and if you chose to purchase the blank for a tubed kit, it is at your own risk.
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 don’t use a CA Finish (we use a few coats of Ultra Thin), you might be able to 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.
