    My First Retro Pen

    I am still fairly new to Pen Turning and this is my first Retro Pen that I turned from acrylic.
    I think I should have painted the pen tube white before I glued it in as I can see the tube in various places.

    Ian.
    I think we’ve all at sometime wished we’d painted the tube/inside the blank after we’ve turned them.
    We learn by our mistakes.
    Nice coloured blank too.

    Never mind Ian, lesson learned, it’s still a good looking pen.
    Kind regards John.

    Been there done that..... sometimes it can work good and add interest, but normally not. I now paint the inside of the hole with a cotton bud with acrylic paint....
    All that said, good looking pen and well done......
