Millefiori Clay Pen
I have been wanting a fountain pen for quite some time now. I decided that was going to be my birthday present to myself. After doing a little research and putting some thought into it, I chose to make my own pen.
I ordered millefiori clay canes on Etsy. I purchased a fountain pen kit that was meant for woodworking projects. The kit even included a cartridge of black ink, which I chose not use. I purchased some blue ink cartridges. Instead of turning wood for the outside, which I have no clue on how to do or the equipment to do it, I covered the pen with clay.
A little slicing, sticking, rolling, baking, assembly and voila ... a pen!
