These pen blanks are aptly named “Spectrum” for autism awareness, and they also display a spectrum of colors with the holographic puzzle pieces within clear resin. These blanks have a diameter of approximately 3/4″ and are approximately 5″ long. Price is for one blank. Check out the video below to see more details of the blanks up close.
These blanks are best used for diamond painting pens, “kitless” pens, or handles. These types of projects will retain the look and feel of the raw blank. If making kit pens with tubes inserted, the final appearance will be changed.
Note to kit pen makers: understand that clear resin will show tubes through if you are making a kit pen. Using nickel plated tubes will keep the raw look of the blank as close as possible, but you will see some glue splotches. Alternatively, you can paint the inside of the blank to cover up the tube and any glue splotches, but it will alter the look of the blank significantly – the clear portions will take on the color you paint the inside of the blank.
According to the CDC, 1 in 54 children is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder in the U.S. Prior to making these blanks, I wasn’t aware the number was that high. Hopefully these blanks will not only provide some fun for the pen maker, but also help to spread awareness of autism in general.
