Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a limited-edition 4th of July 2021 blank that will only be available June 9th - July 9th, 2021. Any blanks on the shelf after July 9th will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after that time. Some of the glitter used in the blanks are extremely limited, but we believe we have procured enough for the entire run (fingers crossed).
What can be more exciting than celebrating the birth of our amazing nation with three fantastic red, white, and blue blanks for us blank enthusiasts? Tori had fun finding just the right glitter to bring these blanks to you for a glittertastic 4th of July Limited Edition run of these blanks.
This blank is a mix of Transparent Red and Blue dyes and an Opaque White resin dye (no micas here) mixed with Red and Blue holographic fine glitters. Tori thought the opaque white mixed with the red/blue transparent colors looked like a paint palette when she combined them so that's how the blank got its name. The blank turned out a beautiful swirl of patriotic colors with stunning, sparkling touches of glitter. Take a look below and please take a few home!
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. This blank is not as see through as the other blanks because of the opaque white. It is up to you if you feel you need to paint the tube or interior of the blank.
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 would love any comments, compliments, tips, suggestions, complaints, etc.
