    Nebula effect

    Hi all

    I have been playing with the idea of casting a pen blank which has a nebula effect. I believe these are the "in thing" at the moment. I have enjoyed various levels of success but none that I would call stunning.

    I was wondering if anyone here has any ideas. I believe there are a few ways this can be done. I have pearl, mica, and nebula powders which are probablyall the same thing and suitable glitter.

    I would love to see pictures of what members efforts.

    Cheers
    Frederick

    In a way mate this to me is like a so called Dorathy Dix question when I looked this up on Google up comes in this order Nebular effect in cast pen blanks, Videos, Images on this subject,How does one acheive this Northern Light Effect , etc. Then a heading by your good self. I imagine those who have acheived this (in your case using Silver (real) have acheived this in some form) complete with how to,specific instructions.

    I wish you well,if I had acheived success in this question perhaps I would try to stay ahead of the mob,what do you think mate? By Dorathy Dix questions this refers especially in Parliament when one party use prior knowledge to get another platform to discuss it.
    You use in your claim Aurora Effect which is Nebula to me.

    Have fun Fred.

    Hmmm. I believe you may be getting your casters in a muddle Peter. To the best of my knowledge, Frederick is asking a genuine question because he doesn't know the answer. He is not a commercial caster seeking to further his interests by underhand methods.

    I can't help you though Frederick - I'm not a caster, but there are plenty here who are, and one my pop along to help you shortly.

    Not my intention but asking the question I do not doubt it is my impression Fred sells his cast pens. It is a way of questioning. I will go back to Google and try to find other answers. All the best Peter.

    Yes, Tim MacKenzie is a commercial caster. He makes DiamondCast blanks, which I sell on the Beaufort Ink website in fact. They're beautiful. Frederick though, is a different person, and is asking for his own enlightenment I think you'll find.

    Hello Phil

    Thanks for this post. You are indeed correct. Perhaps I should have phrased the post a little differently.
    I certainly wouldn't do anything underhanded and I am certainly no businessman that's for sure.

    Cheers
    Frederick

    Hi Phil
    You're correct again. All I want to do is make pens and improve my skills.
    My intention is to produce the best looking pen ever.

    Bit of a way to go yet though

    Cheers
    Frederick

    Hello Peter

    Just to clear things a little. I do not sell my blanks nor do I sell my pens unless someone actually asks to buy one. I then do sell them but at a subtantial loss. I do donate some to charities but, more than often, i give them away to family and friends.
    I maybe be making some blanks for Pierre but on a friendly basis, again I will not be making any profit and will no doubt "lose" from it. I do it to assist him and his ambitions to produce RAF blanks for RAF veterans.

    All the best to you,
    Cheers
    Frederick

    I would like to send you two superior pen blanks to lift your spirits from Aussie timber ,one being the Kimberly Beef Wood and one a surprise,when you detailed your use of pens it so matched mine over the last thirty or forty years.Did you look at the initial references I gave on Google for Nebula Blank making and results?

    Peter.
