    Default 3 for a friend

    Here's 3 I just got done, tried to keep them very different from each other.

    First we have the crazy green one that has an amazing sparkle that really catches the light. It also has a a chatoyance when tilted in the light, shifts the light reflection... If you know what I mean. Green clear acrylic on the bottom with a deep dimple so you can see it through the side wall.

    Next I wanted to do one like the old Lucite brushes. with a bit of a modern feel with the white lightning Kirinite on the bottom, and is visible through the side wall of the clear. I painted the inside cup black just like the old ones had been done back in the day.
    Forgot to take pics of this one.

    Last but not least, was one I hadn't planned out. I was originally going to do a solid smoke handle but thought it would be to much like the clear one. So I had a piece of this blue acrylic the website called "Avatar" and thought maybe I should try some of that. I also had the base of a handle I did a reknot for, that I kept. I believe it came off Evnpar's Edwin Jagger synthetic brush that I cut up. It was big enough that I glued a piece of the blue on top of it and instantly thought, Rubberset. Now, I had no idea what was hiding under the skin of this blue "Avatar" blank, and when it finally showed itself, I was in shock. Not exactly what I had in mind, but I think it works.

    So the green one looks to have a boar? What knots are in them?

    Come to think of it, all 3 of them are rocking my boat! Maybe it is sensory overload, seeing them all three at once?

    The 2 small guys have TGN 24mm 2bands, and the green one has an Omega 27mm with the black plastic trim taken off.
