This project was a lot of fun! I have been kicking around the idea of working with resin for some time and also incorporating some 3D printing too. This project combined the two nicely, while still including wood.

There was certainly a lot of pieces for the making of this pen. My friend has a 3D printer and made the shapes of ranks for the soldiers in Squid Game; circle, triangle and square. I also asked him to produce a skull in grey, to offset from the white shapes and to represent the front man and death.

The wood I choose was Pink Ivory. The pink color was to represent the outfits of the soldiers. The black resin was for their face masks. The micarta was just a separator for style.

The pen kit for the project was the Jr. Zen Pen, which has a magnetic cap. The color of kits come in silver, gold and gun metal grey. Yeah, I choose gun metal grey for obvious reasons if you have seen the show.

When the pen is closed we have the gun metal grey cap, black resin with the shapes protruding through in contrast, micarta spacers between the resin and the pink ivory, finishing of the description of the pen.
