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!!
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.
I will preface my review by saying that I am a Sakura worshiper, I have owned or own just about every gel pen type they make. There is nothing technically wrong with these. They glide on the page, they flow perfectly. They are technically 100% what Sakura always delivers but I probably won't buy them again. The ink colors are too pale, they don't work at all on porous paper and the finish is well FLAT. This soufflé should have been baked a little longer. The concept is great, I do realize that regular paper wasn't the #1 intended use but the glazes work rather well on average quality porous papers. They raise off the page and shine. These didn't raise at all and the colors are soooooooooo very very flat, I could even deal with that if I saw any puffing at all but the finish on paper is similar in effect to plain white flat paint. eeek.. Now if they add glitter to the next batch, I'll probably forgive the color engineers and buy them. How does the Mercedes Benz of pen manufacturers intend to make me forget this little snafoo???? I demand a recall!!!! - OK that might be a bit dramatic but they have so spoiled me that I only expect to be wowwed by Sakura.
The full effect then turned out to be a disappointment to my daughter. Instead of a "souffle" or "puffy" look, the ink was more of a "gel" or "glaze" look. Yes, it was pretty, but not at all what was expected. My mother, who bought the pens, said she thought they were overpriced since they were really just gel pens that you could get anywhere.
We found that the best results for the ink was to draw on a hard surface, like glass or stone. The worst surface was paper or cardboard.
I hope this helps you make your decision. It still may be good for someone who wants a gel pen, but be aware it's not really a puffy pen.

very nice pens, help to fill in special places on the page. the colors are a bit more pastel than others which fills a gap for me, as often I will want a softer color.Published 17 days ago by Lydia Swystun
I was a little disappointed in these gel pans. I was expecting the same color as the cap. The gel does go on nicely and the color is nice but when it dries it is much lighter. Read morePublished 1 month ago by lucysmom
