This month's featured product is the Uni-ball® Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Pen, White Ink.
This pen is a gel pen but it's not your usual gel pen! It is described by the manufacturer in these terms,
· always make a bold statement
· keeps writing comfortable while maximizing control
· forms an indelible bond in paper, for intense coloration and document security
AND we have found this all to be TRUE!
They also boast of these features for pens made by Uni-ball® :
· – Pigment- based uni Super Ink contains particles that form an indelible bond in paper.
· – Jet setters get it—these pens are designed to compensate for changes in cabin pressure.
· – Ergonomic designs and unique grips keep hands free of pressure.
· – Perfect for archival uses, these help words remain bold over time.
· – Great for fast writers and innovative lefties.
It will write smoothly on all types of surfaces - matte or glossy, smooth or textured - as shown in this video clip.
I love how I can embellish my artwork. In the next video clip I used acrylic paint to stamp on shiny metallic paper.
The stamp I used is an ArtFoamies stamp designed by Nathalie Kalbach of n*Studio .
"I love the Uni-ball® Signo pen! It is so smooth and writes even over slightly textured surfaces. I've always wanted an opaque white pen to use over acrylic paint and I'm so happy Shelley sent me this one!" - Leah Tees, OOAK Artisans Design Team Member
