Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a limited-edition St. Patrick's Day blank that will only be available February 24th - March 24th, 2021. Any blanks on the shelf after March 24th will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after that time. Some of the glitter used in the blanks is extremely limited, but we believe we have procured enough for the entire run.
No St. Patrick's Day blank collection would be complete without the Irish Flag colors. In our mountain of glitter, we had the perfect green, macro sparkle, and orange glitter to go with the green, white, and orange mica powders used to create our tribute to the Irish flag.
This blank has very low transparency. The turned sample is on a Sierra tube and neither the blank, nor the tube was painted.
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 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.
