Using liquid melamine as a pen finish

« Blog Menu | 20 Jan 2017 10:00:00 Phil

The boss is a pen maker, and he is  frequently asked what finishes he recommends for our pen kits, the answer to which will of course depend on what the pen is being made from in the first place. However, in his opinion, as far as wood is concerned you are never going to achieve a good, strong, lasting finish from wax products alone, and CA, which was never intended as a finish, simply serves to encase the wood in a plastic shell, thereby losing touch with the wood itself.

It’s a personal choice of course, but for most woods he prefers  liquid melamine, and Phil has finally found time to write down his method.

Click the link below to see  Phil’s tutorial on achieving success with melamine as a pen finish. It’s in PDF format and should just open on your screen.
