Fantastic custom handmade pen, this another one of my “faux Venetian Glass” pen holders. I make these from special custom resins that I order; specially made just for me.
This one is a transparent ruby-red (like red glass) with a few sparse swirls of red pearl suspended within, and some glittering holographic resin throughout. Absolutely a gorgeous pen holder…the beauty and transparent quality of glass, yet does not have the excess weight that inevitably comes with real glass, and without the fragile nature of real glass.
A pro-caliber calligraphy pen that will easily handle the demands of the pro calligrapher/penman. And of course I finished this pen with my multi-layer clear (10 coats minimum)…a hand applied hardshell clear that is meticulously and carefully polished to a glassy luster. A finish so tough and so durable that it will never become sticky or gummy (as often happens with spray-on finishes). It is soo tough, in fact, that if ink dries on the pen, you can just scrape it off with your fingernail.
