Hello fellow FPNers,

 

So it was a lazy Sunday afternoon and i was in front of my laptop with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

Beside my laptop was lying the Oliver Karma demonstrator. I had bought it quite a while ago and used it quite a lot. As a result. The clear acrylic barrel had developed scratches that scratched the eyes of the viewer. Also, it had not been factory polished from inside the barrel when i had bought it. It had the marks of lathe machine in it. 

 

As i sipped my coffee, an idea struck me like a bolt. Perhaps the result of my strong brew! I thought, why not try and give it the "frosted" finish that has recently gained quite some popularity. And off i went to convert my thought into action. Here is the result...

I have two of these Karma demonstrators. I'd like to do this to one  :)

 

So, how did you do it? and more importantly, what brew of coffee was it?

 

EDIT: Never mind, I found your technique written about it in your post in general Fountain pen reviews sections.

 

Regards

Rakshit
