Sugar Orchid was originally a much different blank. Tori runs a lot of tests and experiments with the resin in order to come up with new and fun things for you all. The original version of this blank didnít turn out how she wanted but she loved the name so much that she created a Glitter Swirl blank using Orchid flower colors just to match the name.
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.
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 Swirl Alumilite blanks are made in-house here at Bear Tooth Woods. Comments, compliments for Tori, tips, suggestions, complaints, etc. are all appreciated and help us do our job better.
