Craftprokits - Pen & Project Blanks

Shockwave Acrylic Pen Blanks With a choice of strong and vibrant colours, produce stunning pens with this range of acrylic pen blanks. This range of acrylic pen blanks has a larger section than most of our other types - this is in response to demand from customers requiring blanks for pens of a larger diameter. At approximately 150 x 20 x 20mm, most of the larger pen designs can be made using these blanks. We recommend finishing acrylics with Micro-Mesh abrasives used wet, followed by burnishing cream which should bring them to a highly polished surface.
