My niece’s college graduation is coming up shortly. She’s really big on glamour/glits/sparkly. I saw some gold flake colored acrylic blanks at Woodcraft and decided I’d give them a try. I’m not a big fan of acrylic but I thought these turned out pretty and I’m hopeful they will meet her style.

I sanded progressively down to 12,000 grit, then added a coat of hut wax.

Nice work, I just made my first acrylic pen this week as well. Kind of on the fence if I like it or not. Got one small chip which was annoying hid it though with he clip.
