Excellent work Kerux. I am going to have to break out of my European pen comfort zone and try one of these. Thank you for sharing.

I use analine dyes that I will mix myself. I don’t do the pressure dying. I just trim the pen down and then add my dye, sandy, add dye… sand…etc until I get it to where I want it.
