Pro Tip: Don't expect to do any real writing with these like you would with other pens. You can spread your letters apart if you wanted to, but it can be a slow process.
Pro Tip #2: If you do use regular paper or regular cardstock, don't expect these pens to give a 3-D effect. It really won't happen unless you layer the color on, even then not so much. They do take a few minutes to dry, but you can see the drying process happen. Using regular porous cardstock, the ink soaks right into the paper. They are nice, matte, soft colors, but in my comparison to the Glaze pens they don't raise hardly at all. I also tested them out on Ranger Inks Inkssentials Specialty Stamping Paper ATC's and got a more 3-D effect from the Sakura Glaze pens.
Pro Tip #3: After waiting for the Souffle pens to dry, adding a Sakura Glaze pen (clear) Sakura - Glaze Pens 10/Pkg-Brights over the top of it gives an interesting result. Matte to Glaze!!
They write super smoothly, no skipping or blotches of ink coming out at once. I'd really love to get some more Gelly Roll pens, but unfortunately, they are quite expensive as far as gel pens go, but it is definitely true that you get what you pay for. Cheap gel pens don't write well, have bad colors, skip or cause ink splotches, the ink runs out really fast, etc., and that never happens with these, so they are actually worth the money. I like to use them for doodling in my art journal, making cards, writing in my planner, and once in a while, coloring adult coloring books. I am conscious of coserving the ink, and I don't know if I have to be that careful or not, but I tend to not use them in adult coloring books as much as I do cheaper gel pens, even though I like them way more, haha.
Recently I used the white Soufflé pen on green paper evergreen trees - hoping for a snow effect. I was so pleased when it dried! The white was completely opaque, matte finish and yes, slightly puffy, just like a soufflé. Love it! Can't wait to do more with these pens.
PS: Read the instructions on how to use because yes, it works better if you use slow motions to get increased ink flow. This helps with what I call ink puddles on the paper. This is exactly what you want, the ink to build up so you get that thick, very watery look. If you just hold the pens in one spot for a few moments, you'll see the ink flowing out onto the paper.
Note of caution, if you are doing multi colors next to each other, they will run into each other while in the ink puddle stage. So you may have to color in stages, letting one color dry before you apply the next color. I learned the hard way and got some very runny colors!
Drying: You'll have to let them dry for at least 10 mins, so make arrangements to set your projects aside during drying period.
The colors are very pastel, even paler than the colors of the pen caps in this picture of the product, and oh so sweet and delicate. I wouldn't imagine using these on anything other than colored paper because I can't imagine they'll show up on white paper. I write in my black paper journal a lot, so I haven't wanted waste ink on an experiment I am pretty darn positive will fail.
I hope any bad review is mitigated by this review since you need to know what you're getting into before you purchase these! The description provided by Sakura really fails on this product, unfortunately.
The only down side I would note is that there's a flip side to the "cuteness" of the soufflé-like ink drying: when I write in my journal, when I reach the bottom of the page, I blow in the ink to encourage it to dry quicker. It's a little annoying to sit there and hold my thoughts, BUT, it also gives me a chance to really select the right words. So it's kind of a benefit and a detriment....
But I love love love these overall!! It looks really terrific on black paper, and I can also imagine them on colors like amethyst, fuchsia, ocean blue..... Any bold, jewel tone, or dark paper I assume it will look terrific on.
They're supposed to be FUN!! Remember that and channel your inner tween ;)
