  1. Zac,

    Thanks for the video! It is just on time, as I purchased some interference powder and wanted to know what it looked like mixed together. I love the idea of adding the black, which gives it an Abalone shell effect. I will be making some kitless fountain pens with this resin cast idea.


    1. Glad to hear it helped out Joe. It took me a while to figure out what to do with the interference powders too, just wasn’t sure what to expect. The other way to use them is with dark backgrounds, then the colors will really pop like when you add the black swirls. I also recommend painting the tube black for the pens, it should help bring out the color as well
