Hello

Roger want to know how I colorize my pens with natural colors ( Flowers or another plant with her leaf)
The wood is ready and me too

Go to woodturning and colorize the wood !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For this pen I use some leafs of a plant in my garden ( You can use petals flowers also)

After colorize the wood I use some wood chips to polish the color and after I use a varnish

You can combinate differents leafs and differents petals flowers to make your personnal colors

Thanks for looking
Comments welcome

Jack, I think it would be a good idea to seal the wood first, as you mentioned, then add the color, and finally seal the whole project with some kind of lacquer. Sounds logical.

Best,

Serge
