Nebula Pen Blanks

$15.00

“Nebula” blanks are inspired by the beauty of the cosmos. When polished up, they are reminiscent of so many of the wondrous celestial events captured by the Hubble space telescope. These blanks are perfect for astronomy lovers! The pearls have incredible iridescence, and shimmer and shine when you move it around in the light. Parts seem almost black until light hits it just right. For best results, use black nickel tubes or paint the tube black. Made with 100% Alumilite, these blanks will turn like butter and shine up beautifully! Check out the video to see this blank turned and assembled into a Jr. Anthony Fountain Pen:

The Alumilite Advantage!
Alumilite is by far the best resin I’ve found for casting pen blanks. It’s a joy to turn, yet it polishes up to a high gloss. Finishing these blanks doesn’t get any simpler! Just sand it up to a high grit or use micro mesh pads, then finish it off with some plastic polish or on a buffing wheel. Check out my video that walks you through my 6 step sanding and polishing method for a flawless finish on Alumilite blanks: http://nvwoodwerks.com/how-to-get-a-flawless-finish-on-alumilite-blanks/

GOOD BYE CHIPOUT!! Alumilite blanks are not brittle like many of the mass produced or polyester resin blanks on the market. The blanks are cast under pressure to ensure there are no voids or trapped air bubbles in the blanks.
