This is Polymer clay, these are slivers of clay canes, pressed onto a clay body then fired in the oven. They come pre tubed and pre sized all I need to do if a quick CA finish...

Mark are these prefinished in that you don't have to sand or use sand & sealer or carnauba wax??
Is she a local company???
Hi Tom, no these aren't pre finished they require a CA finish, you can do a laquer but they are better in high gloss..... She is based in the US but posts globally

Mark you’re not wrong. Toni does some superb blanks. I’ve had them from her before. She gives excellent service.👍

Don't like CA prefer melamine. However on my acrylic pens I would use Autosolve chrome cream And then Tcut or turtlewax finish with carnauba wax. I wonder if that would work I think they would be great for a Ladies pen, as I was asked do you not do any ladies pens........
