Pushing Myself...PIC

Jim Shaver - Oakville, Ontario

Well I took some time tonight and worked on two pens, much in the same theme as my post from the weekend, Caramel Swirl.

I took a hard look at that first pen and went to work on pushing myself to make it better.

So I worked with a green Lucite and a gold celluloid…enough with the translucent materials.

I am intrigued with a design with a solid end , keeping a pleasing form and shape to be comfortable in the users hand.

Here are my results..

The green Lucite is on a platinum Gentlemen’s fountain pen.

The gold celluloid is also on the same kit,

I have two black wood blanks going as well in the shop, I am in a groove…..taking from Keith’s post earlier, good is not good enough, I am after my best.

Thanks for viewing,

Take care,
