This wonderful white gel pen is oh so useful. The "ink" flows smoothly from the pen. It's nice and thick and the white is vibrant. I use it on eyes (the paper kind of course) all the time - it give them that gleam you want eyes to have. I also use the white gel pen for adding dimension to punched creations.
While perusing the many blogs I love to visit, I stumbled upon Sharon Field's blog. She had a wonderful list of white gel pen tips. Here list was so good that I just HAD to share it with you. I hope you find these tips very useful. I know a few of them have helped me improve the use of my white gel pen.
Gel Pen Tips
- Gel pens are not filled with ink, it’s paint in that tiny tube!
- Gel pens take longer to dry than markers.
- Always store gel pens horizontally (on their side).
- Clean the roller ball tip of the pen after each use to prevent paint accumulation and drying.
- If paint does dry on the tip, try removing with a little rubbing alcohol or odorless mineral spirits (aka paint thinner that doesn’t stink LOL).
- If the gel pen appears to have a lot of ink and/or bubbles in the tube, the paint can sometimes be pushed down to the tip by inserting a long, narrow bit of eraser into the tube. As you push the eraser down the tube, the paint will be compressed toward the tip of the pen.
- This one really scares me… I’ve never tried it and probably won’t ever try it… but some people actually put the pen in a microwave for a few seconds!! I think if I was that desperate, I’d set it point-down in a 1/2 cup of boiling water first!
- Replace cap immediately after use! Don’t put it down unless the cap is on it, even for a second… it’s too easy to get distracted by kids, pets, phone, etc.
