“Autumn Pasta” Pen Blanks


“Autumn Pasta” pen blanks are made with a white resin with tri colored rotini pasta mixed in with the casting. The pasta creates an excellent pattern that looks like hieroglyphics or tribal art, and the white resin shows off the colors of the pasta: red, yellow and green. It reminds me of the colors of leaves in autumn. This is a fun to turn blank that produces a great looking pen!

SKU: PBPasta-003 Category:


White Resin & Tri Colored Rotini Pasta

Each blank is 100% unique, but the colors remain constant due to the extensive testing and documentation of specific color recipes. Standard pen blank sizes are 5″ x 3/4″ x 3/4″, and prices are per blank.

Fun Embeds-Pasta

One of the best parts of casting pen blanks is experimenting with different materials to embed in the casting. Pasta has turned out to be one of the best materials both for casting and turning. The finished product almost looks like hieroglyphics or tribal art!

I recommend using a full CA or similar top coat finish on these blanks. You want to completely seal the pasta. You can also use a little thin CA glue during turning, drilling, and squaring the ends to ensure there is no chipping of the pasta.

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.

GOOD BYE CHIPOUT!! Alumilite resin is 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.
