Haven’t turned anything in a while, but these are 2 pens I turned for a friend. One is for her sorority, it is pink and green acrylic. The other one is for her because she wanted a white and black pen. Also acrylic.

I have to work on taking better pictures.

All comments are appreciated.

Acrylics turn rather easily, but the Micro Mesh Padded Abrasive kit is a very good addition to give it the finish. They go up to 15,000 grit and I think are a must for acrylics.

Thanks for your comment.

Shane – if you’re turning these in a basement make sure you have adequate outside ventilation if you don’t want your whole house smelling like burning plastic for a couple hours.

Have your say...
