For years I have been turning pens. I have always kept the acrylic cutoffs. Every now and then, I would glue them together and make a hodge-podge pen. Well, I came up with an idea to use them all. I cast them in an epoxy resin. I used a really cheap bowl from the dollar store for the mold. After pouring in the resin, I let it set for two days. Then I went to work on turning out the bowl. I think that if I had used polyester resin, the casting would have been clearer, but I think it looks great either way. The point is is that it was a success. I am going to have to do this more often in the future.
