Verified Purchase
I LOVE these! I bought the blue quite awhile ago, just to test the pen and see if they really worked. I wound up being so happy with the performance that I bought the whole set!

Don't dry too long, just like another reviewer said. It will make the ink crumbly and it will shrivel up. I wrote with the blue one in a handmade book I made for someone - and many, many months later, it's still pretty dimensional. That's after having the book closed tightly for all this time.

I feel comfortable recommending these - they are totally different than "normal" pens - and the ones I've received haven't had any flaws. They're grreeaat! :)

(My 10 year old loves to play with them, too!)

After trying and trying to make these pens puff up I realized I have to use a fan to make that happen. And by a fan I mean a hairdryer! Unless you're willing to buckle down with a hairdryer to make these pens look their best, don't bother spending your money. These are definitely not for doodling on the go. Without puffing them up they look like the Sakura Gelly Roll pens. Not so bad, but I suggest you get those instead.
I would give this three stars, but since it did say that you have to use an embosser in the description, I'll give this four.

~~ Oh, one thing. Don't heat them for too long or the puffs will start to dry out and harden as well as somewhat shrivel (spelling?) up.~~

These are pretty neat. Best if used with an embossing dryer/heater. Hair dryer didn't work so well for me, it took a long time and you had to put it right on the paper and it got super hot. I found that holding a lighter up to it worked better than a hair dryer. Not to where the flame touched it, but close enough for the heat to hit it. Worked on front, or heat from the back. I also liked the smooth surface it leaves when you don't heat it.
A nice alternative to the same ole same ole.

The colors are nice and they do puff, but I've noticed that they run out of ink quickly and sometimes you have to squeeze REALLY hard to get the ink out.

Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure how much I would like these so I only got one. As soon as I got it in the mail, I tried it out. I absolutely love it! It puffed up really well and quite quickly when using my embosser heat tool. The puffiness is not delicate and will barely get crushed down with pressed. It also will not smear or rub off unless you scrap hard at it with your fingernail. It even puffs up when it has dried (at least, for me [with the heat tool]). I am eagerly waiting for the 10 color set to come back in stock so I can buy it!

Verified Purchase
These pens are so much fun! If your a craft person you'll absolutely love these. And if your easily amused watching them pop up with heat will fascinate you for hours. So much fun my mom stole my original set and made me buy not only a new one for myself, but an extra 3 for herself and to give as gifts.
