    Add a touch of patriotic flair to your next project with Pen Makers Choice™ Stars and Stripes Acrylic Pen Blanks.  Available in three patterns to choose from, they can be used as is on two piece pens for a stars and stripes theme, or with some extra effort they can be laminated together to create a flag pattern or Americana theme on small projects that would make Uncle Sam proud!

    Stars and Stripes Acrylic Pen Blanks drill and turn easily and can be polished to a beautiful gloss finish that will look great for years.
  • Blank measures 3/4" x 5"

  • Note:
    The Stars blank is semi-transparent and may require painting the brass tube or using Chameleon Pen Tubes to mask the brass tube on thin walled pen kits. For the Jr. Gentlemen's Pen shown in the photo, we used a black Chameleon Pen Tube.

Old glory...

Comments On Sep 14, 2015:Found this acrylic at the store in utah and picked up one blank of stars and one wavy stripes. Used a cigar pen kit for effect and was not dissappointed. The black components of the kit and the colors of the acrylic blanks worked well together. The dark blue stars blank is a bit transluscent so I used a white barrel to lighten it up just a bit. A brass barrel would be very visible on some of the thinner walled pens.
The acrylic turned well with few issues. Did turn it at a slightly slower speed than I usually turn wood blanks.
Polished up well with a nice smooth surface.

Stars and wavy stripes

Comments On Aug 07, 2015:I just finished two Apprentice Fancy Slimline pens (using just one of each of the stars and wavy stripes) blanks. Stars on top; stripes on the bottom.
I painted the inside of the blanks with white spray primer, and the brass tubes did not show, and the colors were quite vivid.
I was a bit concerned that the stars might not show with the blank being turned down to such a small diameter. However there was nothing that said it wouldn't work on the website, so I plunged ahead. I called Tech Support, and he cautioned me that they are a bit more prone to chipping than other acrylics, so I turned them with appropriate caution, and sharp tools (round-nose scraper and a skew).
The turning went well, and as I feared some of the stars didn't make the cut, but only a few and they were in line. (That's why there are clips on the pens, right?)
All in all, I was very pleased. Just be advised that a thicker wall will allow more of the stars to come out, even in the daytime.

Nice Patriotic Pens

Comments On Jul 10, 2014:I made several of these pens for the 4th of July. The end result was some very nice patriotic pens. In my opinion they would make an excellent choice for anyone participating in the Freedom Pens Project. I probably should have painted the inside of the stars blank because the tube does show through slightly if you hold it up to the light. It's not really that noticeable in most circumstances though.
I made pens with both the wavy stripes and the straight stripes. I preferred the way the wavy stripes looked on the finished project. Plus, I had one of the straight stripes inexplicably explode on me while turning it. It's always possible that was my fault.

This is a "about time" product.

Comments On Jun 25, 2014:I have used all 3 and will never go back to the 500 wood pieces type again. Colors are very bright and polish up very bright. When you use them knock off the corners, this will help prevent chipping. Try them you will like the results.
