These blanks were made from 2 different tree species bark, blanks from 1 to 12 were made from Silky Oak tree bark cut with the tree length, and the rest were made with from Australian Ash tree bark in cross cut.
All tree barks are buoyant and very difficult to soak with any liquids but, I manage to stabilize all the bark before they were cast with Polyester resin (PR), with a combination of colours. Both bark types were cast with the exact same resin colour mix...!
Before these blanks were listed and immediately after I made them, I decided to use them on one of my regular "guess" games that a run 2 or 3 times each month on IAP (International Association of Penturners) based in the USA, and see if member could identify what was the material used and tree species, together with the cut type I used. This turned out to be a very interesting and funny game, have a look for yourself here
These will work like any other fragile blank, the bark will never harden enough, compared with the resin density so, I call these type blanks fragile as they do require a fine touch and approach however, that extra effort, pays big dividends in the end...!
Blanks are sprayed with varnish for protection and colour enhancement for the pictures shown.
Thank you for visiting...!
