The "Striped in Stars" fountain pen is a large (oversize), cigar shaped, clipless ebonite fountain pen. It has been covered in 4 layers of black base urushi lacquer (wet sanded with #1000 grid sandpaper after each application and curing). After the base coating has been cured, stripes where masked on the pen with masking tape. The next layer was done with red urushi, hologram glitter has been sprinkled into the wet laquer creating the "Stars". Further layers in clear urushi where painted on and cured. Once the urushi was completey cured, the pen was wet sanded until the red urushi became visible in spots under the star glitter. For the finishing kijo-mi urushi got applicated on the pen and wiped off with filtering paper. After curing for additional 24hrs, the pen got polished and once again kijo-mi urushi got applicated and wiped off. After a final curing period the lacquer was burnished and polished to a glasslike shine. Length of the production process: 2 months.
