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 Spring 2021 blank that will only be available April 7th - 28th, 2021. Any blanks on the shelf after April 28th 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 know quite a few of you are fans of our other lilac color blanks so Tori combined a beautiful Lilac Opal Chunky Glitter Mix with Pink Holographic and ultrafine mint glitter in an Interference Violet Mica to give us this stunning blank.

This blank will have some transparency. The glitter/mica combo does offer a lot of coverage, but there will be more transparency on the thinner walled kits. The paint color you use on the tube or on the inside of the blank after drilling will affect the final outcome of the turned project.

The finished blanks shown were painted on the inside of the blank after drilling with Dark Purple (left) and Pale Pink (right) spray paint so you could see how a darker vs. lighter paint color would affect the finished product. Each barrel was finished with a few coats of UltraThin CA Glue and sanded through 12000 grit.

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.
