More info

Acrylic blanks make for beautiful pens as they shine up so well. They should be turned at the same speed used for wooden pen blanks. To reduce the likelihood of the material chipping while turning, keep your tools sharp.

When turning acrylic material, you should produce cuts of acrylic “ribbons” that curl away from the blank as the lathe spins.  Acrylic can chip away if excessive force is applied to the chisel.

When turning the acrylic blank, do not turn down level with the bushings - allow ample material for sanding in order to prevent the blank from being under sized when complete.

For a high gloss finish, use wet sandpaper up to 2000 grit, or Micro Mesh 12 000. Thereafter, shine to a high gloss using a polishing compound.

Good service
This is the first order that I have placed withPenKits Direct and was very impressed with the the prompt delivery service . One of the items that I purchased was a Molten Metal acrylic blank, take care when turning, the acrylic is very bitty and the surface chips even when using sharp tools so it is best to leave the blank a couple of millimetres big then finish of with a scraper but it is well worth the effort as the finish and the colours on the blank after polishing are excellent, would recommend.
