I’ve never turned purple heart before so found it both interesting and challenging to complete it. Used ca glue and a little plastic polish and I’m pleased with the result.It’s an Apprentice click pen from craftsupplies. Thanks for looking.

Nice job. I like the looks of that pen and almost bought some.There are concerns about the clip getting loose.Did you do anything to the purpleheart prior to finishing it?I ask because the first one I did does not seem to want to get purple. I have since put them in the sunlight for the better part of 24 hours to turn them. When there is sun in Ohio that is!

Hi D_Allen. No I just sanded it down. Nothing special. Still trying to learn the ca technique. Takes a while for it to turn purple again. I’ve done a few of these Apprentice clicks and haven’t had that problem. I’ll try that sunlight technique.. live in sunny southern california.!

I guess the issue was that since the clip is held in place by the tension against the blank, it could become loose if the clip was bent outward during use and lost that tension. Some questioned why they didn’t just design it with the clip fastened to the finial in the first place and eliminate this possibility.
