Just a couple of shots of the latest pen and pencil set, made for a colleague to give to his other half for Valentine's Day. Not sure exactly how romantic a pen & pencil are, but the red metallic pearlescent acrylic looks quite good, especially in sunlight, where it sparkles nicely.
 
The usual finish - 12,000 grit Micromesh plus a coat of Renaissance wax.

Thanks guys.
 
Perhaps I should have said "daylight" rather than sunlight, although it was pretty sunny here this morning for a while. Freezing cold, but no snow - yet! We usually seem to miss the worst of it.

Nice pair of pens Simon. The only problem with the pen with the cap that I find is that there is not an extra band on the open end of the cap which could lead to it getting damaged (A design fault not yours)
 
Alan Renaissance wax is a wax as described which acts as a protective layer over the pen it helps stop fingerprints I use it all of the time on my pens

Thanks chaps.
 
Agree about the lack of a band on the open end of the cap Derek, although I have not heard of any mishaps yet. Coincidentally, a customer for whom I had made a black acrylic version managed to drop the whole pen onto a hard floor last week, which broke a sizable lump off the pocket clip end, even though I had used Araldite to stick the tube in. It was beyond repair, so I had to make a new cap.
 
Strangely I've tried on more than one occasion to get folk to buy other styles of pen, but most seem to prefer the "Artisan" ones that you see in the photos.
 
Price wise (comments in another thread), I charge anything from about £12 up to the mid £30's depending on the pen.
 
Simon
