First acrylic pen.

First one. I stopped getting chunks after it was round. :) looked like Easter basket grass. Stinks bad. But turned out pretty nice.
On the final polish, I melted the lower barrel a little bit and had to go back and sand it again.
Thanks for looking.

The smell is why I won't do acrylics.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Nice acrylic. The only thing I see is a small part of the tube is showing through. On your next one paint the tube the color of the pen if possible. It will make a world of difference.

Yeah, I don't like it either. I'm glad I only got a couple of these blanks. I won't be doing many of them.
