Aqua Glass Spike Pen
I hand turned this one from a solid block of acrylic resin. Being solid acrylic, this pen is soooo durable.
Acrylic is not the easiest material to turn. It's finicky and must be handled slowly and properly...but when its done right, it finishes like glass and looks fantastic.
It has the look of glass, but not the excess weight of real glass (a glob of glass this size would be clumsy and unwieldy as a calligraphy pen). Also does not have the frailty/fragility of glass.
I've used this "aqua glass" acrylic resin a few times in the past, and it is always popular and in high demand. And no wonder, with the way they look and feel (and perform)!
This pen is a professionally handmade custom calligraphy pen. It will easily and happily meet the rigors of professional use.
It is finished with my super hardshell clear coat finish (I put 16 coats on this pen). Hand applied finish, one coat at a time (not a spray on finish). Meticulously wet-sanded and buffed out to a mirror-like sheen that is extremely durable. This finish is ultra-durable, and will never become sticky or gummy, not ever; and if ink dries on this finish, you can simply scrape it off with your fingernail. My finishes are very glasslike in their feel and appearance.
