It's hard to imagine that someone out there has not experienced using this
fabulous brush tip glitter pen. But if you are new to it, you will gladly join
the Kuretake Addiction Club LOL!
Take the lid off your first pen. Then remove an extension, black "O" ring. You
will not need this anymore as it only prevented the movement of fluid towards
the brush during transportation and selling. Look at the white barrel on the
pen. You will see two areas near the center where you need to "gently" squeeze a
couple times to start the clear ink flowing towards the brush. You will even see
the gold-ish ink in the see through section now. Get ready for fun and
Take any color of paper or card stock and slowly brush until you see a faint but
very discernible GLOW of sparkles in the brushed area. There you have it. Pick
the paper or card stock up and closely examine what is happening. You will see
the finest (smallest) yet highly reflective, dainty sparkle dust or small flecks
that definitely capture your attention. Use it alone, or over any other color
medium. If you combine it with a water base color medium, use caution as running
the Wink of Stella (or WoS as I call it) can reactivate the water color and move
it. Just use it gently and quickly over the precolored areas. No worries if you
brush it over alcohol based or other types of color mediums. It will only
enhance the beauty of your work.The product flows like a thinner, water base
medium. But it is not runny. Perhaps it is better to describe as a thin, gel
type medium base, but it isn't globby in any way. Hard to describe the base,
just as it is hard to describe the sparkles, themselves. Unlike glitters, this
product lays down a superfine 'glow,' a sprinkling of a type of fairy dust? It's
something that once you see, you will find yourself scrambling a bit to try and
explain the product to someone who has not used it before.
Although the Clear WoS looks like it is in a gold type water base, it comes out
clear. The gold color is coming from the extra extra fine glitter particles
themselves. As you brush the product, you will not see the medium, only shine.
Just go somewhere and try this out. It is very hard to describe and extremely
pleasant to look at!!!
I add WoS to art work that has snow, water, ice, eyes, lips, moons, suns, stars,
metal (ice skate blades, tools, etc), anything that has reflection in real life.
This product is NOT gaudy. It is not garish. It is highly pleasant to look at,
very delicate, and adds a gentle pow to any artwork you brush it on. Just be
careful not to get carried away (this is especially hard to do once you get
going). It needs a little red flag to pop out of the pen that says "Ok, that's
truly enough for now." Other than knowing when to stop, the pens are just
perfect. Use the color WoS to create your own brush pen alphabets and numbers to
make some fantastic custom addresses on your own envelopes and sentiments.
