I cannot thank enough Marc and Mandy for presenting me with a glass pencil.
I do not produce calligraphy and did wonder how I could use this gorgeous pencil.
Eureka, I am using it in many ways.
If you are an artist and do not possess one, I really recommend for you to experiment.
Here is the presentation box, front and back. Very pretty and inviting!
In the box
Out of the box, this elegant pencil with Red Ink
Notice the groves of the pencil. It is where the Ink deposits and slowly go down as you write.
Impeccable constant same size
My excitement is I have found I can lay watercolour in the groves.
It can be different colours and so will not go down on the paper as a unique colour.
I have laid a few lines to show how fine the pencil is..
But my biggest find is, it is excellent to use as Masking fluid pen. Very thin lines that you can control
No more fight with brushes or drawing pen and masking fluid bulging etc..
The very top exciting advantage is, I can wash the glass pen and use it again for anything!
What about that?
I am going to get another one just in case...
