Artsycraftsy experiment: A real cola pen!

Guess what I made? 🙂
Because I was curious about the advantages of using a REAL, live cola pen, I decided to bite the bullet and just make one. Very very carefully.

So I got a can, and just went for it.
I used a popsicle stick as handle, and muttered some prayers as I cut the can.

Thankfully, I didn’t cut myself. I made one for each color and several more for giving away to friends 🙂

I found a hard, acetate-like plastic which I used to create more pens with. I’m excited to play with my new pens! What have you been making lately? 🙂
