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.

Prairie Home was born when Tori was experimenting with how many colors she could effectively pour in a blank and still have it look good. Tori watched a lot of Little House on the Prairie when she was younger so that's how the blank name came to mind based on the colors she chose to pour into the blank. She ended up with 6 colors in Prairie Home and 3 glitters.

The brown, antique gold, and interference gold reminded her of windswept grass in the open plains. The blue was added for the open sky that seems to be an endless pool of blue on summer days. The green and pink were added for wildflowers that drift in the breeze and tickle your toes as you run through them. Ultra fine mother of pearl, gold holographic and rose gold holographic glitters are included to compliment the original colors and to finish off this blank with a little extra sparkle. We hope this blank adds an elegant touch to your finished project and reminds you to get outside a little (or a lot) to let the flowers touch your toes and take a deep breath under the open sky.

With the amount of colors in this blank, you may notice it is hard to find a pattern match for 2-tubed kits. The top and the bottom of the blank may look drastically different depending on the pour.

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.
