I just accidentally deleted my blog entry so lets try this again…

These are pens that I made for a few of friends for their Businesses. I used testors decal paper like Kerux has so eloquently portrayed.

I should probably mention that these were gifts. I did not charge for them.

Decal Pen

There is a subsequent video that I created to show how I make pens from start to finish, including putting the decal on. I am only going to link the first one, because there are 5. If you like want to see the whole process, click on the link to my youtube page and check em out.

Thanks for looking,

Enjoyed your blog on YouTube. Have you ever applied a decal to the acrylic blanks? You would have to use CA on top of them, which I have never used on acrylic. Just wondering if it would work. Great pens!

Yes, you can put it on almost anything…I have used CA glue on acrylics when I add wood to it. I finish over the acrylic to protect the wood inside. My finish does a fine job on that too.

On my youtube site, there is a video of my christmas pen that has maple in it and I finish it over with CA.

Happy Turning,
