    First attempt at casting

    So this is my first attempt at casting my own blank. Alan Morrison kindly sent me a casting mould he hadn't used for free which spurred me on to give it a go. Unhappy with bought glitter blanks, I made my own and I'm very very pleased with the result.

    Thanks for the post, Derek.
    One un-loved and discarded mould given a fresh start in life.
    It seems to be in good hands now, and that's an impressive first pen.
    I hope that it produces many more for you.
    Alan

    Thank you, I'm sure it will as I've already ordered more colours in this particular type of glitter. The effect especially in sunlight is absolutely stunning.

    Like the guy on the movies I love it when a plan comes together also its a credit to you for the glitter distribution to be so consistent,indeed a huge success.
