Tori doesnít work with yellow and orange together very often so she decided to come up with a blank using those colors. The yellow and orange would often bleed together during her tests, creating a messy blend of colors, so she solved this problem by adding in pinks. The final product was this shimmery, vibrant concoction that will be sure to bring a sweet pop of color to any finished turning project.

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 Alumilite blanks are made in-house here at Bear Tooth Woods. Please feel free to email us with any comments, concerns, suggestions, etc about the glitter blanks.
