I have been busy working on some pens as gifts for family members for this upcoming Christmas. All pen kits are from PSI. All are finished using CA.

Here are the details (from left to right)
  • Gold Slimline with Purpleheart.
  • Bullet Pen in chrome. Mystery wood (Looks like a Rosewood to me).
  • Gold Slimline with Padauk.
  • Gold Slimline with Rosewood.
  • Gold Slimline with Bamboo.
  • Gold Slimline with Purple (Amethyst) Acrylic.
The second picture:
  • Designer NT in Chrome with “Orange Crush” Acrylic.
  • Designer NT in Gold with Red Acrylic.
  • Designer NT in Gold with Blue/Purple Acrylic.
  • Designer NT in Gold with Zebrawood.
  • Designer NT in Gold with Cocobolo.

Nice pens will have to try some day. They look smooth and nice clean finish.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

They have somewhere between 10-20 coats of CA. I just cut up a paper towel and stop when I run out of strips.
