Alaskan Spalted Birch Has Arrived!

Alaskan Spalted Birch

Just arrived back form the stabilizer is one of my favorite woods, Alaskan Spalted Birch.  Birch is a light wood and these pieces are from Alaska that have started spalting.  These pieces have been stabilized to make it easier to turn and once a finish has been applied to the blank,  the true chatoyance of the wood can be seen.  These are “Eye Candy” to be seen!

Faux Cigar Pen kits

I want to thank Dale DeHoff for working with Arizona Silhouette on this great Faux Cigar project.  These simple to make pens offer the cigar aficionado a great gift.  The pen blanks are made from highly figured exotic woods and burls.  The kit comes pre-tubed and turned.  All you have to do is some turning, finishing and assembling to have one of these one-of-a-kind pens!

Great Pen Making Class & New Products!


Arrowmont Class-2016

I want to thank all the attendees who participated in my Fine Writing Instrument Class at Arrowmont last week. Lots of pens were made, skills learned, listened to great music and more importantly,  new friendships established! We even had “our service dog” Maria add to the fun!  Experience level was from absolute beginner to intermediate but everyone learned something including me! A special thanks to Dan who taught all of us about fountain pens and nibs – thanks Dan!

While I was teaching at Arrowmont we received a number of New Products in the warehouse that I want to share with you.  The Motorcycle Ballpoint Pen kit has really taken off and we have a few special blanks that just arrived for the Motorcycle pen kit.  A special motorcycle pen blank  was created for this kit and it is an exclusive for Arizona SIlhouette.  New Kallenshaan Inlay kits were designed such as the    Flames Inlay kit and the Skulls Inlay kit. Speaking of skulls, we received new skull inlay kits for the Sierra and the Skulls Pen.  Polymer Clay pen blanks are back in stock but not for long.  We received 19 of them in and only 11 are left and it has only been a few days!  Last, but certainly not least we are now an Alumilite and Pearl Ex Dealer!  We have Alumilite Clear and Alumilite White casting resins along with Alumilite Dyes and Metallic Powders.  Our Pearl Ex selection has over 19 different Pearl Ex powders to choose from.  In addition, we are starting to offer stabilized Burl Casting Material (live edge pieces) to go along with all the Alumilite and Pearl Ex products!  So take a peek at the New Products section of the website for all the new products we just received.
