Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you set of a limited-edition Halloween 2022 blanks that will only be available October 31st, 2022. Any blanks on the shelf after then will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after that time. Some of the glitter used in the blanks is extremely limited, but we believe we have procured enough for the entire run.
Tori had a lot of fun mixing her zombie blank for last year’s Halloween collection so she decided to whip up another one this year. When formulating the blank she wasn’t sure how well this color combo was going to work out, stating “This is about to be either the coolest or ugliest thing I’ve ever made”. It definitely turned out to be unique.
3/4"+ square by 5"+ long -- 19mm x 130mm
Magenta Neon Pink, Purple, Light Pink, Forest Green, Neon Green, Chocolate Brown
Hot Pink / Purple Opalescent
Each barrel was finished with a few coats of UltraThin CA Glue and sanded through 12000 grit.
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 don’t 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.
