New Pens from JetPens!
JetPens sent me a $25 gift certificate to use in their store. I thought I'd try out a new case along with some uniballs in different colors and tip sizes. Here's what I bought:
Here's the pens on plain, white paper:
Here are the pens on dried acrylic paint and gouache (ALWAYS make sure that your page is dry first as wet paint or acrylic medium can mess up a pen!):
They will also write on washi tape (not anything plasticy) but you need to make sure that they are given plenty of drying time.
I like the .38 Uni-ball Signo DX UM 151 pens MUCH better than the .28 pens that I wrote about last month.
The Broad Uni-ball Signos in 153 are one of my most favorite pens on the planet. I really like the dark blue ink (see the circles on the page above) that I got. I really wish that they'd come in more colors.
I LOVE the case. I am planning on using it this summer when I travel as it fits several pens, a big FAT Coccoina 40 gram glue stick and more. I'll post more photos after I STUFF it with stuff. It's not a big as this case (which I have and adore and it's FULL of pens) but it's a great size case that holds just enough for on the go use. I can't wait to FILL it and use it!
