I am away from home for three days (in day two) and after the meetings, sitting in a hotel room managed to put this video together. I forgot to wipe my lathe clean after spraying the chemicals on the copper and as you can see, I ended up with a patina lathe as well. You may also notice a bunch of paint on my fingers.
At the same time that I was making the pen, I did my first ever painting which can be seen as the background in the picture. Subsequent paintings produced disastrous results. Unfortunately, I didn’t video the painting or document the process; oh, well!

Thank you Larry. Why be normal?? Remember that car sticker from the 80’s? I guess I embraced the idea!
John: Thank you for the feedback. Glad you liked it.
