This is a pen I made for my wife for her birthday. Originally it was going to be a ‘steam punk’ pen, but there were to many little details in my design that I could not work out in time. Once I got the old pocket watch dissassembled, the back plate was too cool to ignore. So I filed it down really thin so I could bend it around the tube. Once I had the tubes painted and all the little parts stuck to the tubes, I cast them in resin and waited. Once I had it turned, I wet sanded it to 12,000, then I went to the lambs wool with the tripoli, white diamond and then the carnauba wax. When I was done I was so excited, I had to show it to her, even though her birthday is not for 2 more weeks.
Thanks for looking!
