Bear Tooth Woods has created another category of blanks for Tori's Glitter Alumilite creations. These blanks are meant for Small Projects and not necessarily for pen blanks (you can see why in the last picture below). Tori has turned the blank into a Diamond Painting Pen to show it off, but we know how creative our customers are in finding many other uses in addition to Diamond Painting Pens for these great blanks. Don't forget to tag us (@beartoothwoods) on Social Media if you show them off on Facebook or Instagram as we LOVE seeing what you do!

This exciting, vibrant blank of rose gold has tons of holographic glitter including rose gold butterfly glitter with gold and rose gold fine glitters. Tori loved how the butterfly glitter looked like a swarm of butterflies in a spring garden when she cast it in the resin. Butterflies can see in colors and aren't you lucky you can too to be able to see the Butterfly Garden blank? Pick one up today!

The glitter has been cast in a clear alumilite base. The blanks may look solid in the photos, but look how transparent they are in the photo below. If you do decide to use this with a tubed project (we don't really recommend this because we found when you turn this blank too close many butterfly wings are chopped off in the process), 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 donít 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 because of the size of the glitter. 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.

Butterfly Garden blank turned on Sierra Vista pen tubes and the inside of the blanks painted peach.  Many butterflies wings were butchered with the turning of these tubes, because of this pain we caused we don't recommend this blank for tubed projects.
