You know that feeling when you find an amazing pen that just writes & draws perfectly and glides across the paper like a dream?
Yep, I found one!
In fact, I love it so much, I'm gonna tell you about it. Because I found a version of it in Wal*Mart for $3, which is super affordable and local, so I don't have to worry about the ink running out!
The first pen I got is the bottom one, a Uniball Signo 153. This is the black version of the best white pen ever created, and wow is it amazing! The ink flows beautifully, and the thick lines are dreamy. It's like a paint pen but not - it's gel ink but is waterproof!
(Just remember that when pens say waterproof, they usually mean when used on paper. They're formulated to soak into the paper fibers, so keep this in mind when pen shopping. I've used mine over markers and the lines stay put; if you want something that is waterproof over ANY media, I recommend the Pentel Pocket Brush w/ India ink.)
The "replacement" pen is a Uniball Signo 207 Bold. This is in their line of pens to prevent check fraud, so it's mostly waterproof. I got a pack of two for $3 at Walmart!
The two pens are identical when you write. I tested my neon Letraset marker, a Copic marker, and some water over the ink and you can see the results above. The Letraset spread the ink, but it stayed in place for everything else...and not many pens survive Copics!
Here's what I've been doing with my shiny new pens...mandalas! I'm finding it so relaxing to curl up on the couch, put on a movie, and color! I love adding doodles to the original patterns! This one is still in progress...I'm sure I'll finish it tonight. I can't wait to reveal the project I've been working on!
PS. I have so much in my heart to share, I'm full to bursting! So many thoughts to put in order and art to share. I've been updating my Etsy shop every other day with new original paintings, as my studio space is changing and I need to clean things out! Check it out for some awesome, vivid paintings!
