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.
Minty Magenta was born when Tori was playing with some neon mica colors. The pink-white-mint color combo is always a popular one for blanks, so Tori wanted to create her own version, but with a very LOUD pink twist. If you are a fan of SUPER INTENSE, unapologetically bright pink colors, then this is the blank for you! This blank wonít be overlooked on any of your finished projects as the gorgeous black and neon magenta color swirls merge with the softer mint and purple-shimmer white in this blank to create a striking contrast of color that demands to be seen.
The blank features custom mix neon-magenta-pink, mint-green, purple-shimmer white, and Black micas with mother-of-pearl glitter. One of the cool things youíll notice is that in certain areas where the mother-of-pearl glitter is mixed with the neon-pink mica, the glitter looks like it glows red. Check out the close-up and pattern photos for a better look at it.
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.
