I've not posted here for a while on what I've done so far. But here is my latest one. I'm not sure how many times I have thoughts about abandoning this project but was finally able to get there! The pen that took around 6 months to completion due to long wait required for curing between each pieces of raden and the complex curves on the pen body which shaped like zeppelin. Pen is Oldwin classic oversize in ebonite completely covered with cracked raden technique where raden is broken on the pen body.

I can't imagine how amazing that must look in person.

WOW. That is a beautiful pen.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Oh wow. That is stunning. Looks like it grew organically ... like a pearl in an oyster

Too many pens, too little time!
