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.

Desert Dance is a blank that Tori came up with by accident when she was organizing all the mica powder jars. She had been trying to find a fun new color scheme to work a gorgeous copper mica into without copying any of the existing copper colors we already had. She couldnít quite find the right mix for the longest time until one day these colors happened to be sitting next to each other. She thought they just might work for that copper blank she had been trying to formulate. She worked her magic in her mad color scientist lab, creating a few custom mix colors for these blanks and presto! We had our Desert Dance blank.

This blank consists of 5 colors - Blue (custom mix), Teal, Copper, Red Copper (custom mix) and Purple (custom mix) Micas were mixed with Copper, Teal Holographic, Mother of Pearl and Purple Holographic glitters. The different colors in this blank were meant to emulate the parts of a desert landscape. The copper and red copper are the land. The blue is the night sky. The teal and purple make up the shadowy foliage under a moonless desert night.

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. 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.
