Our Shimmering Opal series represents a great collaboration between John (from Underhill Custom Creations) and David (from Elder Pens). These pens combine foils, colorants, and adhesives to create a brilliant opal-like pattern. The reflective substrates shimmer in the light, radiating color in all directions. Textures and waves in the material add depth and complexity to the appearance, while being encapsulated under a perfectly smooth magnifying resin.

Finish: Gloss – The crystal-clear gloss finish holds several distinct advantages over the satin finish. It is much more durable, and will never need refinishing. It provides a clearer, better lens for light-colored woods and layered woods of contrasting colors. For intricate designs with inlay or small pieces, the gloss coating acts as a barrier to prevent small parts from separating. The “smooth” option guarantees an ultra smooth finish, achieved by a two-stage finishing process with cyanoacrylate, sanded to 12,000 grit, then waxed and polished
