Sparkle (Raden)

Descirption - Sparkle - mother of pearl pattern

The "Sparkle" fountain pen is a cigar shaped, oversize, clipless ebonite fountain pen, featuring a stunningpattern of colors made of "Raden" (=mother of pearl) and black and clear urushi with metal pigment. It is a cartridge converter pen with a Nr. 6 two tone nib. The pen has been covered in 4 layers of black base urushi lacquer (wet sanded with #1000 grid sandpaper after each application and curing). For the next step mother of peral pieces where applied and cured. The next layers where done with clear urushi, until the pen seemed to be almost black in color. Once the urushi was completey cured, the pen was wet sanded until the raden became visible depending on the thickness of the lacquer. 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 several times to a glasslike shine. Length of the production process: 2 months.
