Watch Mazzuccelli create Cellulose Acetate!

Jonathon Brooks shared a terrific video with me and I thought it worth passing along to you.

Mazzucchelli was founded in 1849 and is one of the top producers of cellulose acetate in the world. Although heavily used for eye glass frames and small items, they have historically produced some great materials thick enough for the pen market with a richness of depth and color hard to match with modern acrylics.

Watch how this material is produced from cotton into a final finished product.
