http://www.pensbylyleross.com/1/post...tted-pens.html I finally did something that I've wanted to do for a while now - a spotted pen. The original was always going to be a dalmatian pattern - white with black spots. I started it before the ladybug, but a little mishap down at the brewery delayed the dalmatian, and the ladybug was finished first. The ladybug was suggested by ethernautrix at a pen posse gathering a few weeks ago, and I thought the colors would be perfect for a pen. I'm very happy with how it turned out! The first one isn't perfect, but I am confident that the next one (after the dalmatian at least - more learning opportunities with that one http://fpgeeks.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.png ) will be. I'm very happy to add these to my roster. Next up will be more colors, and a drop shadow idea that I have. It should be really cool... if it works http://fpgeeks.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.png There's also a video at the link above, and a few more photos, but the photos posted below are probably the best of the bunch.. Thanks for looking! http://www.pensbylyleross.com/uploads/1/2/6/0/12608908/1538997_orig.jpg?168 http://www.pensbylyleross.com/uploads/1/2/6/0/12608908/1148999_orig.jpg Lyle
I think this is where this post belongs . This is my first completed bulb filler. It took a bit of trial and error to get the bulb filling system to work, but it fills up like a champ now. I don't know how much ink this thing holds, but it is a lot. It takes about 14 squeezes of the bulb to fill it up completely. The body of the pen isn't perfect, but this was sort of a "get it done" pen for me to use. I think this may end up being my favorite filling system. It's fun to use, and I think it looks cool too . It's made from Alumilite resin that I poured myself. Medium JoWo nib. It's a big pen - 14mm cap threads (triple start), 135mm long uncapped, 147mm capped. http://www.pensbylyleross.com/uploads/1/2/6/0/12608908/4201526_orig.jpg http://www.pensbylyleross.com/uploads/1/2/6/0/12608908/2748028_orig.jpg http://www.pensbylyleross.com/uploads/1/2/6/0/12608908/7551900_orig.jpg Private Reserve Black Cherry - about 3/4 filled probably http://www.pensbylyleross.com/uploads/1/2/6/0/12608908/3374510_orig.jpg Blog entry about the pen:
