After making a series of these blanks, the process left me with a lot of this shavings of polymer clay, all with patterns in them so I layered the shavings on top of each other to get enough to make these two pens.

The blanks were turned and dry sanded to 600 grit. Then a layer of thin CA applied and then 8 layers of Medium CA, then sanded again dry to 600 and wet to 3200. Then polished on the buffing wheels.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like them.
C & C Welcome.

Bob.

Sure get a WOW for those Bob, great looking pens but also don’t know of that material. Sure has got a nice pattern after the layering. Thanks for showing.

Bob, this is awesome. Using scrap material and turning it to this. I always wanted to try and glue up some wood shavings to see what happens. It would never look that good. Cool idea.

Thanks Guys.
Polymer Clay is a plastic clay material that is worked like plasticine??, when formed it is baked in an oven which makes it hard.
It comes in a million colours and can be blended to whatever shade you like.
I might do a Tutorial if anyone is interested.

Cheers,
Bob

Absolutely stunning, Bob. And, yes. I do think it behooves you to share the process. The pen makers among us would consider that a truly good and helpful thing for the Honorable Bob to do. I am not (yet) one of them. But, given enough egging on by you, one may never know what wonders may come.
