No Longer Here, BY CHOICE
Are you selling pens or just making them for yourself?
I ask because its my belief that I shouldnt sell some one a product that requires them to reapply a finish to keep it looking good. Not to mention, I have yet to have a single customer complain about a plastic feel or even mention it. In fact, I always get compliments on the super high gloss finish. I dont know of a single finish besides CA thats as durable and requires virtually no maintenance.
To each his own but for pens that are to be sold, I dont know of a better finish than CA.
As for the fumes, someone told me recently they were harmless. I dunno. I wear a respirater and I dont smell em.
