My Custom hand painted pens.

Recently i began experimenting in customizing fountain pens, mainly Lamy Al Star pens as they are easy to disassemble. Not only that but they are quite inexpensive pens to practice on. I use different techniques as well as metallic powders, gold leaf, paints and lacquer to achieve the final results. My first three pens completed are quite different in designs and are available to purchase. Unfortunately the bronze pen has a new home now in USA. My fourth is a lovely Parker 51 pen set which had some issues which i managed to cover, and create a absolute amazing set.

The finish on these pens are amazing and the numerous coats of lacquer that have been applied gives them a smooth glass like finish. They actually look much nicer in the hand than the videos show below.

I am currently working on other designs and ideas that will also be available to purchase. Why not take a look at the pens below :-
