Try Out Thursday: Souffle White Pen Review

  As promised, here's the close-up photo of the drawing you saw in the last post:
The pattern in the middle was done by Joni. It's called "Diva Dance".

    And of course, I did the typography. Here's the time-lapse video of me creating it:

  The first thought I had after using the souffle pen... "What sort of watery nonsense is this?" whilst making a scowling expression. Because it really was that terrible. I wouldn't have given it a second chance had it not been for the fact that I was testing out other pens along with it. After testing the other pens, I looked back at the test area of the souffle pen. Lo and behold, the ink was now a solid opaque white. I seriously did a double-take, and then promptly went to look at the pen's wrapper.

"Give ample time for ink to dry. Color changes as the ink dries."
  It really does take a while for the ink to dry, but it's so worth it in the end... The ink is very opaque and the pen is now my current favourite white pen alongside my trusty Uni-ball Signo Broad pen. The pen's wrapper said that it was suitable for embossing, so I tried going really *really* slowly to get more ink to pool onto the paper, but that didn't seem to make much difference than if I were to just keep the pen going at a steady pace. You can feel the ink on paper, so it does dry to a slightly raised finish, which I like.

  The set I got has two pens, which, I believe, will last me for quite some time. The only downside is that the shipping costs to Singapore is rather high (I got this pen from Amazon). However, if any of you know where to get this pen in Singapore, do let me know in the comments section below.
