Golden Flames

Description - "Golden Flames"

The "Peacock" fountain pen is a cigar shaped, oversize, clipless ebonite fountain pen, featuring a stunning pattern of colors made of clear urushi with goldpigment. It is a cartridge converter pen with a Nr. 6 steel nib (Jowo). The pen has been covered in layers of black base urushi lacquer (wet sanded with #1000 grid sandpaper after each application and curing). For the next step clear urushi and powdergoldpigment where applied and cured. The next layers where done with clear urushi and goldpigment, until the pen seemed to be almost brown in color. Once the urushi was completey cured, the pen was wet sanded until the golden flame pattern became visible and the gilding showed through, depending on the thickness of the lacquer. For the finishing fine urushi got applicated on the pen and wiped off with filtering paper. After a final curing period the lacquer was burnished and polished by hand with ever finer polishing pastes several times to a glasslike shine. Length of the production process: 3 months.
