Do you know that feeling, standing in a art supply store looking at all those beautiful, bright, intense colored pens and you just can’t decide which pens you should buy? I was a little bit overwhelmed about the number of pens/markers that are available nowadays. So I did some research on the internet before I bought my pens/markers. I was looking for the brightest colored pens for black paper for a good price and after reading reviews and comparing pictures I’ve decided to purchase the Gellyroll pens from Sakura, the Moonlight version. Why? Because these pens are so beautiful and bright on black AND white paper, the contrast is amazing, check out the picture below.
These pens are also nice to work with because the ink dries quickly so there aren’t any risk of smudginess and the price is also very good (for me at least).There are different versions of Gellyroll pens available:
- Gold Shadow
- Silver Shadow
I’ve bought the Moonlight 16 pack fine point pens 0,3 mm-0,6 mm for €22,95 on a Dutch website who orders them in America. You can also buy them on Amazon or Ebay.
So if you want to make some amazing art I definitely recommend the gellyroll pens from Sakura. They are my absolute favorite!
In my next blog I will write about the Gellyroll Metallic pens from Sakura.
