I've managed to turn a new pen that is of my own design and I've added a bit of pyrography, if only in a simple but effective way.
I have turned a slime line pen already from wild mango and it looked like this.
I can't say that I am over the moon with the shape either, so I decided to modify the design. To do this I made my own centre band from a mixture of yellow, green and black polymer clay. I stuck this onto the end of the bottom blank and turned it to the size of the barrel that I wanted. Then I removed the centre bush and butted the top blank against the centre band and made it all the same size. Here is the result.
By the way. I am having a free book promotion on amazon from 22nd to the 24th of November. If you would like a free download of my book, "The Reluctant Pom please click on the books tab at the top of the page then click on the book. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
