Did you see our earlier review of the Pop Manga Coloring Book?

If you did, then you read where I used a new gel pen set to get that amazing color in the coloring book, and now I want to tell you about those great pens, that offer a second option for great no-smear pens this back to School season!

US Art Supply Jewelescent 144 Gel Pen Set

The US Art Supply Jewelescent 144 Gel Pen Set gives you not 1, but 2 sets of 72 amazing gel color pens! Each 72 pen set includes a vibrant and bold colored assortment of superior artist quality gel pens that include Classic, Glitter, Metallic, Neon, Pastel and Swirl Colors, 

These amazing Jewelescent gel ink pens are safe for children to use, as they are non-toxic, acid-free, easy to wash off of the skin, and conform to ASTM D-4236 standards, which means they are PERFECT for Back to School use!

Because the pens are acid-free, they offer superior archival quality for long lasting vibrant inks that don't smear, fade or skip. Or you can use them as exceptional writing pens, that provide consistent free-flowing ink, with a smooth glide, for perfect lines with every use! I don't know about you, but consistent flow can be a HUGE issue when you are working on a project! When you have pens that allow you to move back and forth with ease, your project just goes smoother and has less stress! 

 The 72 pens are stored in 6 convenient organizer trays, that all fit snuggly inside the larger box, with individual spots to hold each pen, so you can keep all your pens neatly organized and ready for use. My only quibble is how the pens are secured in the trays. As you can see from the bottom right pix above, there is just a small piece of plastic to hook the pens onto, and then put them in their slots. While it keeps them in place, it makes getting them out of the tray a but of a pain. I wish the trays were a more sturdy formed plastic instead, so the small piece of plastic could be done away with. That would also allow for easy grabbing the color you want, when using them for a project. As you DO want to leave them in the trays, so you know which pens are which type (ie glitter or neon). You could mark them, and put in a larger container, but this is a smaller, more portable one, so you might want to just keep them in their trays.

These pens really offer super smooth writing every time, thanks to their strong durable 0.8 to 1.0 mm tips. That's not much tip difference really, but it does allow for a finer line, when you need it. These pens really offer exceptional vibrant visual results, each and every time!

Aren't they just wild????
 I literally pulled from each tray to make the mane and tail, and you can see how the mix really lends to a more dramatic picture. The glitter pens really add just the right amount of sparrkle, but don't overwhelm at the same time. they worked really well with mixing with pencil as well. I was really impressed with the lack of smearing too! I was able to color right on top of each color, with ZERO smear and ink on my hand!

You can really let your imagination run wild when using these artist quality gel pens, thanks to the amazing colors and types you get! By varying the neons and glitter gels, you can really add some amazing dimension to your drawing, sketching, coloring, scrapbooking, crafting, doodling, greeting cards, invites, and holiday decor! 

These pens are an excellent gift item, as they are great for keeping children, teens and even adults entertained, while allowing them to express their creative side. Because you get TWO sets of pens, you have one for the kids to use for school projects and art, and one for you to keep to use. AHA!!! Or you get a set for each kid, to reduce the arguing over the pens! And with their 100% LIFETIME SATISFACTION GUARANTEE, you can't go wrong with these pens! These pens are our new favorite pens, and they'll be yours too!
