Gallatin 7 - Dalmatian Spots cartridge/converter fountain pen

At long last, what was supposed to have been the first spotted pen is done.  Well, sort of.  I got a little aggressive with the cap finial seam bevel, so I may need to touch that up a bit, but it isn't bad as-is anyway.
 

Photos were tough for me.  Just when I thought I had my photography skills up to minimum snuff, a black and white pen pops up :lticaptd: The white background proved to be the best of the bunch somehow.

 

This is a large sized Gallatin fountain pen - 14mm cap threads, triple start.  #6 JoWo nib.  Hope you like. Thanks for looking :)

That is a very fun pen. Do you plan to make one in red as well? Just kidding. Are the black dots in the material or did you apply them?

I should make a red one.  That would be awesome! :)

 

The dots are in the material.  It's all resin.

So, are you going to make 101 of these Dalmatian pens?  *laughs*

 

And I thought you already did a red-with-black-dots pen?  =)

Oops, I missed that one. They are both a lot of fun. I like how the black spot on the threads has some relief. Very nice work.

Thanks!  Ah, I misunderstood your post.  I thought you knew about the red one. 

 

I also made a purple and white one, but I goofed it up with an experiment gone bad.  It looked great though...

Yep, most of my resin pens are made from my own material.

I've already made bumblebee pen blanks :)   They are made from a more brittle resin, sadly :(   They'll make a beautiful pen, but don't drop it on a tile floor....

 

I do have an idea for a different sort of bumblebee though, with the good resin.

Ooh, I just looked at your website, nice job! The bulb filler is cool.

Whenever I see the title of the thread, I always assume it is about a pen made in Dalmatia (in Croatia) :-)

 

Although not my taste (when it comes to what I'd like to own), it still is a fun design!
