Update Jan 18th: We are shipping orders within 1 day. USPS delivery times for domestic orders are still long (1-3 weeks) with some long delays with out being scanned. Unfortunately, we do not have any control or influence over the post office and we do not have access to any more tracking info than what you do. We ask that you allow the post office at least 2 weeks to deliver before inquiring about your order.

International orders are still slow. Most are taking over 4 weeks to arrive. Please inquire about UPS shipping. It is not available as an option through the website, but is available via email. It is about the same price as USPS for shipping 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.

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 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.

Robin wanted Tori to come up with a “Sexy” Valentine's pen blank so Tori combined a gorgeous red glitter with red and black mica powders to create the pen blank you see in this listing. The red glitter almost seems to glow inside the red mica against the black and Tori thinks it looks like a red satin dress a young lady might wear out to dinner on Valentine’s Day with her significant other on this all important Date Night.

This stunning blank has a medium-low transparency, which means you won’t have to paint the interior of the blank or the tube(s) for thicker-walled kits though, as always, it is up to you. The blank shown is finished on a Sierra Vista tube and none of the silver paint underneath showed through. You might want to paint the interior of the blank and/or the tube for thinner-walled kits.

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.
