This used to be my go-to white pen of choice (before I discovered Uni-Ball's
white pens). It has a nice consistent line and on plain paper it works very
well; for most people who will only be using it to write on dark paper, they're
However, for what I use white pens for (drawing highlights overtop of marker
colored drawings), often it would soak up the pigment from the marker underneath
and turn a light shade of that color, rather than a flat white. If that's a look
that you want (a lightly colored mark to match the color under it, instead of
just flat bold white), than these work very well. However, if you want your
white pen to be WHITE, no matter what, I'd try a different pen.

Really great pen! It does as well as the Uni-Ball Signo Broad in white but good
for spot work and half the cost.
This pen works twice as well as Pentel Sunburst Gel in white and Pentel Hybrid
Gel pens but again, not nearly as costly. I've two and am glad of the

Simple...Best white ink pen I have used.
I use copics and adding highlights to my character's eyes are a lot easier with
this. The ink is nice and very white. The price is great. But it's not meant to
do a large area. Small to medium areas.
Overall, recommend this.

, July 1, 2013
I draw quite a bit, so having a good white pen for 'shines' is important to me.
The Gelly Roll works pretty well, probably the best pen I've found so far (not
that it's had much competition). The ink is thin enough that it's not too cakey,
but thick enough that one good layer of it does the job. The only big problem
I've really had is that the ink I use on my drawings is NOT compatible with this
at all (the ink is not water-proof, but is alcohol marker proof). Thank God I
tested it before using it on a real drawing, the pen swirls about the ink as if
it were dipped in black. If used with other Sakura pens though, it works like a
charm. Overall, good pen.

this is a pretty nice pen!
I bought it from Michael's, and now I;m buying an new one from here :D
I used Prismacolor and Copic markers, and when I need to highlight or accent
dark things, this pen works pretty well. If you make a mistake and color out of
the lines (or always color out of the lines, like me) it does a nice job of
covering up... about 60- 75% of the stain. watch out for dark colours.
Though it does run a little dry if not used for a bit, and sometimes instead of
solid lines, it leaves the inside blank, overall it does it's job. And for a
nice price, as well! I guess you get what you pay for.
You can't really overlap with this- one coat and it will just junk up and
gross-ify itself if you try to make a second coat. So don't do that. But in
itself, it's not a bad pen. I recommend it to anyone who needs a quick white
jelly pen! My friends all steal this from me when we're together.
