“Blue Galaxy” Hybrid Dragon
Gorgeous pen that I made from a custom “hybrid” blank. This pen is a combination of natural-edged burl wood that is fused to a stunning blue/purple pearly resin (with a little bit of sparkles sparsely added). The random “shapes” of the wood where it joins to the resin are all the work of Mother Nature in the natural edge shapes of the burl wood. This type of pen (with the combination of natural woods fused to resins) are known as “hybrids”.
The blue-purple resin is reminiscent of the beautiful photos of distant galaxies in outer space (i.e., photos taken from the Hubble telescope, etc). It’s almost like having a teeny galaxy built inside of your unique pen! I used Brazilian Ebony wood for the ornate handle stem/tail. Really a pretty pen holder that you will love using and looking at
This pen is a high-end, professionally handmade custom calligraphy pen. 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 will never become sticky or gummy, and if ink dries on this finish, you can simply wipe it off with a damp paper towel or scrape it off with your fingernail.
