Yes, a coffee ink pen. The body is is composed of real coffee beans in a white matrix. I do not think it is acrylic, too soft. After I turned the pen, my workshop smelled like coffee. I gave it a few coats of catalysed urethane to seal the coffee beans and give it a nice shine. Interesting stuff, and yes it was a little difficult to turn.

Very nice, Dave. I like it. The white/cream color really sets off the beans, and one has to take a second look to see that they actually are real beans...

Now, if you can do it with a fountain pen, and distill your own ink from espresso.... :wink:

That is a stunning piece of work! Do you make them professionally or as a hobby?

Just for fun. I do have one guy that buys them from me and resells them on his web page.

That is my cappuccino pen. I should change the barrels and put a fountain tip in it then pick up some brown ink just for fun. I wonder when the roasted on date was?

Wow Dave! Awesome stuff.. You really don't notice the beans are real until really looking at it. Very cool!
