I’ve been having a great time playing with these pens I got from Jet Pens. I already knew that I loved the Signo White gel pen but I hadn’t realized how really bright white it was compared to some other pens. Anyway below are some notes, sketches and ideas with some of the pens. If you click on any of the pictures they will come up full size and non distorted in a new window.
This drawing is done with Signo white and Angelic white and Blue.
This is done with the SAI brush pens. They are water-based so I like using them on the fold of paper that I am going to tear. I fold my paper as usual for tearing and then lightly run a pen along the fold. Then I take a brush with clear water a brush it along the fold to feather out the ink. It also can make the tearing easier depending on the weight of the paper. I wrote “Peace” in purple and shadowed it in pink. I then ran the wet brush over the paper pulling the color as I wanted. I let I dry and then used the Pilot Pocket Brush pen to go over the purple “Peace” in black.
The Latte pens in Sweets colors a just lovely. The colors are a dream and they will work on dark colored papers if you go over them a couple times or just use them once when you want that more ghostly affect.
Last but not least is the Dong-A-Popcorn pens. These things are just crazy, in a good way.
I have to say the Jet Pens have always done well by be as far as filling orders and being prompt and their prices are very competitive.
A correction: I misspelled Susan Lenart Kazmer’s name in my last blog entry. Sorry, Susan. And I am still trying out darker colors only to have The Mailman tell me that he like me natural….go figure
Until next time, take care.
