I am looking up pens on Ebay. I am looking up pens overseas, hoping I can get them cheaper in the States. But there is postage, there is always postage.
Of course I love the gel pens. All art journalers love the gel pens. The uni-ball Signo have smooth writing . I am using the black much more than I thought I would. It is smoother than my Staedtler pigment liners over acrylic paint. I like the thicker line for writing.
The paint pens on the right are fabulous! But so expensive. I got the galaxy markers on sale for$2.50, half price at Spotlight. But they aren't carrying them anymore. The Uni Posca you can get from Officeworks in Lismore or Dolphin Choice in Byron Bay for six dollars. Yup, six dollars. Painful. These are Australian prices you lucky americans.
The paint pens are just what they are called. They are like writing with paint. Wonderful. Go over anything. But make sure they are waterbased. I haven't tried the other ones, but I don't think they would work so well in a journal.
Jeeze, what is the deal with buying all these pens?
