Stabilizing & casting
Making your own stabilized pen blanks or casting your own acrylic blanks
Stabilization: refers to impregnating soft wood with a resin like Cactus Juice, creating a blank that is no longer weak. It is especially effective on those beautiful, punky spalted woods that are just too soft to work with! Learn more about Cactus Juice and stabilizing blanks here.
Casting: creating your own pen blanks using casting resin, dyes and powder pigments.
