Thick line, rich ink- not for detail work or writing, but definitely a smooth
flowing and SPARKLY pen. The glitter is in adundance, and unlike other glitter
pens it's VERY fine so it's shimmer-y instead of giant particles of reflection.
I LOVE these pens for doodling, mixed-media work, journaling, and making notes
for my art studio. So much fun!
This pen is so cool! I do a lot of "dots" in my 3-d work and thought it would be
fun to put a spin on those that wasn't puff/3-d paint (which tends to migrate if
applied too heavily). This pen is amazing- a tiny bit of ink sort of "pops" like
popcorn, creating a bumpy and textural effect. It's not smooth or shiny when
heated- instead, it's sort of spongy. It's very hard to describe but a little
goes a VERY long way. My daughter played with it for a while and by creating
*tiny* dots on a drawing of a dress, the ink gave the appearance of tiny little
blossoms when heated. Now I want to order more colors.
I ordered this and the UniBall Signo- I do a lot of art journaling and mixed
media and finding a pen that will write on all surfaces is impossible. While the
Pentel is a nice pen, it DOESN'T work on all surfaces very well- I had issues
over paint and tape. The Signo was much better for those purposes.
However, I have found a lot of uses for the Pental and do use it regularly. But
my "go-to" pen for mixed media, journaling on all surfaces, and scrapbooking is
definitely the UniBall.
