- The construction of these blanks were developed to maximize the wild swirls amid the translucent background. This also creates a varied density of the colorant material along the length of the blank. One end will be more dense and the other end will be more wispy. Thus the transparency is variable, but you be better off to assume there will be some clear parts.
- These blanks are cast in a thin walled clear tube. This tube is left on the casting and will come off when you turn it. It may look like delamination, but it is just the case coming off of the casting. It can come off in chunks so go slow and use light easy cuts until it is removed.
While Tori was busy casting scores of test blanks, Ernie was busy looking out his window. One day he saw a drake mallard flying away from the local pond. Liking to add to Tori's work load he realized making a duck color themed duck call blank was a great idea. And thus Tori was tasked with finding just the right combination of mica powder's to replicate the appearance of a male mallard duck. And she did a great job!
The Metallic Cloud (mica pearl colorant) and Color Cascade (dye colorant) blanks are created by pouring mica pearl or dye infused alumilite resin into a clear base and allowing them to mix. This creates beautiful clouds/sheets/streaks of different colors through the blank. It also allows the blank to have a higher density of color on one end. This works particularly well when these blanks are used as handles as the higher density is often enough to cover up the hole drilled to accept the end of your item (ice cream scoop, pizza cutter, etc). Then it will often gradually fade to a more wispy collection of colorant. However this is highly variable and no two will be exactly alike. As you can see in part in the photo showing multiple blanks.
Each of these blanks has the same set of colors and the same amounts, but due to how the colors mix with the base material the blanks can be quite different in proportion of colors and the density of colorant.
