I tried to make a Celtic ring pen out of Acrylic but the transparency is so bad. You need to put a backing on the acrylic before gluing the blank up. Then tried one out of mahogany with walnut inlays.

Paint the tubes. I did this once for a pen for my wife and it worked like a charm. Should take care of the transparency issues, although I can’t see it in the pics. Looks good.
