Cholla cactus skeleton cast in a rich purple sage resin!

Native to the American southwest his cactus has a wood-like skeleton with peek-a-boo "holes".  These naturally occurring remains are expertly cast in a richly colored Alumalite resin. Once turned these blanks make a very unique and stunning pen! A real eye catcher - and great sellers at shows!

These are half (Sierra) size blanks and measure approx. 7/8" x 2 1/2" to 2 15/16" long, but will vary slightly due nature of the cholla cactus. Enough to make a single barrel pen, or for a truly unique twist, think about a combing the cholla with a contrasting material on a two barrel pen. Cholla on the cap, black resin on the barrel is just one example. Let your imagination run!

Painting tubes is recommended, and as half (or more) of these blanks are "wood" a protective finish (like CA) is suggested. Although these blanks are cast under very high pressure, it is still possible that you will encounter air bubbles that were trapped in the Cholla matrix. You should be able to easily fill any of these bubbles with CA. Stabilizing the Cholla with CA while turning is also suggested. Special drilling instructions are included with your order.
