    This has quickly become one of my favorite pens I've ever made. It just shines with depth and color and is smooth as glass. I rarely have a project without some little thing I would change or do differently. I can't think of anything I don't like about this one!

    I remember when I learned mother of pearl wasn't a stone, but a piece of shell. Like the kind you pull out of the river as a kid and pile up just for mom to say no, you can't keep them, they smell like rotten fish. Also put a new scale on your next amazon order, I literally want to fight this one in a denny's parking lot.

    Enjoy waiting another 10 years for the doors of stone! Haha! Fantastic series, make sure you listen to the slow regard of silent things, it’s actually read by Patrick Rothfuss himself. Very interesting look into an awesome character

    Beautiful Pen Peter. I do think you missed an opportunity to add an alcohol dye to one of them. That clear black would have looked cool. Blacklight might look cool too.

    Hello! Been watching your channel for a few years now.
    I recently came across Burls Art, who makes guitars using resin with some brilliant results, and it reminded me a lot of your work. (, Was wondering if you'd ever make a guitar body out of resin or wood, perhaps in collaboration with another maker?
    I'm guessing a metal or goth band would love a guitar made out of the Murderbowl material or a pop band might like a gummy bear guitar.

    Things that I am convinced Peter Brown has said/asked before

    "Should I cast my left foot or right foot in resin?"
    "How many gummy bears should I buy for my axe handle?"
    "My mustard resin didn't work"
    "Hey so I know we usually throw the corn cobs away after we're done eating them but uh... Can I have them?"
    "I made a new bowl"
    "I made a new pen"
    "I made an abomination"
    "I need salt"
    "I need pepper"

    Just thought you'd like to know, it's because of you I had the courage and confidence to repair a wooden sculpture tonight.
    My brother broke it. It's one of my mom's favorites and she'd already had a REALLY bad day and neither of us wanted to tell her it broke. So I grabbed some wood glue from the garage, taped it up (cause I have no clamps) and hid it in my room to dry. I'm about to go put it back and my mom will never know (or at least won't notice until she feels like looking closely at it and sees the seam)
    So thanks!

    Came to your latest video because I had an idea I would love to see you try!! I just watched a video from Stone Coat Countertops using their resin and their resin thickener in their latest video. At one point they even made it like a paste. While watching I remembered your household items to color resin video and I wondered if you could use household items as a resin thickener. :D Corn starch and flour come to mind but I am sure you can think of others. Now they color their resin a lot so it is opaque when they use thickener so I don't think corn starch/flour would alter things much but I also wonder how well it would work (probably not very) with clear resin. :P I hope you will consider it. :D - Heidi

    When you said you were listening to a cross between Ender Wiggins and Dartagnan I knew I had to try it. I loved Ender's Game and even the more deep and philosophical sequels. Now I'm loving The Name of the Wind. Thanks! When I finish this series I'll have to get another suggestion off you :D

    🛑Dip-it idea- Popcorn bowl made out of popcorn! Use the same silicone mould as the murder bowl also if you have a smaller circle plastic Tupperware container place that in the center glued down to a cross brace to go over the top of the mould and that could take up mass fill the container CAREFULLY with a little H2O to keep it from floating
    Might not work too well but I'd like to see how popped popcorn casted in resin would turn. Just recently subscribed and just about watched every dip-it video so I'd love to see more! Keep it up Peter, I feel a golden play button in a few years!👍🏻👍🏻
