Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a limited-edition Summer Heat Wave 2021 blank that will only be available July 21st - August 21st, 2021. Any blanks on the shelf after August 21st 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).

During the summer months, after a blistering day of heat, there is a time before the sun sets called the "Magic Hour" where the sun kisses the landscape with its golden glow, making all the colors of nature a little more vivid under its light. Tori wanted to create a blank that felt like those magical summer sunset kisses. She combined shimmery Yellow and Orange Mica pigments and swirled them with a mixture of Teal, Pink, Orange and Gold holographic glitter, which included both a chunky and tinsel glitter. We think you will be able to create your own little magical sunset kiss with this blank.

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. Because of this, we highly recommend painting the interior of the blank after drilling. You can paint the inside of the blank any color you want, but the color you choose will really impact the final appearance.

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.
