Blanks measure 3/4"+ x 5"+.

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.

We had purchased a gorgeous gold/yellow glitter awhile back but we had never found the right blank to put it in... until now. Originally this blank was called Pot of Gold but after we saw how much the gold glitter mix looked like beer flowing from a tap through the green/black swirls, we changed the name to Pint of Gold.

This glittertastic blank features green mica, black mica, and a chunky/fine gold, yellow and copper glitter mix. The glitter mix is cast in clear resin so this blank will have high transparency in those spots. You will need to paint the tubes or the interior of the blank after drilling if you choose to use this blank on a tubed kit. The glitter does offer some coverage on thicker-walled kits, like the cigar, but you will see more of the transparency on thinner-walled kits, like the sierra.

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. Thank you to Deirdre Skaggs for her assist on this blank.
