Moon Child Glitter Swirl Alumilite Pen Blank

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"+.

These blanks mix fantastic colors of mica powders with just the perfect amount of glitter. We have always felt other blanks needed more glitter, so Bear Tooth Woods decided to start making our own and we have named this line of blanks "Glitter Swirl." Tori is the master of color and she is bringing you imaginative mixes of colors and glitter in these blanks for your projects.

This blank got its name from one of Tori’s favorite songs. Fun fact - “Moon Child” is also the name given to people born under the Cancer Astrological sun sign (which is Tori’s sign). Cancer is Robin's Moon sign so both Tori and Robin are feeling Moon Child's good vibes and seeing it through the eyes of their souls (part of a lyric). Ernie doesn't believe in anything astrological, but he does really feel the Moon Child blank would make yet another stellar addition to one of your projects.

Tori mixed interference violet and blue micas with macro sparkle, navy blue mica (total of 4 colors) and Mother of pearl glitter to get the perfect shimmer mix for that otherworldly moon look.

The glitter has been cast in a clear alumilite base. The blanks may look solid in the photos; but they are very clear and when turned to the thinner dimensions of a finished pen, you will definitely notice. Because of this, we recommend painting the interior of the blank after drilling. You can paint the inside of the blank any color you want. The color you choose will really impact the final appearance though.

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 Super Thin), you can 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 Swirl 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. Comments, compliments for Tori, tips, suggestions, complaints, etc. are all appreciated.
