I love the glaze pens. They add such simple texture to the page and are very easy to use. It takes a few moments to "set" but once it dries, the writing becomes very shiny and slightly raised, similar to an embossed effect. I use these pens all the time to create faux stitching, to doodle, to journal, to trace around title letters just to make them pop more! You cannot go wrong with these pens and I don't know how I ever lived without them.

I bought these pens for some of the Xmas cards I was making. I stamped a Xmas tree and use the pens to embellish the tree. OMG, How adorable the Xmas ball came out. The pens are so smooth and when the colors dry looks beautiful. The ink raises and WOW, Awesome...I won't buy any other brand after trying my Sakura Glaze Gelly Roll. You must have them.
You will fall in love with them as I did. A+++++

WOW these are by far the best pens ever!!! I can't stop using them, I love it on everything. It adds a nice shine to all projects. Once you try them you will not want to put them down. They are perfect for journaling or doodling. The quality is FABULOUS, the pens write very smooth, dries fast, and flows smoothly. A must have for your pen collection!

I use these all the time, they`re great for adding a bit of texture to your page with doodles or writing, though they take a bit of time to dry and smudge very very easily when wet - and can be hard to get off of your hands! Still, they`re absolutely gorgeous on the page, particularly on darker backgrounds.
These pens are great. A little bit pricey, but hey what are you gonna do? I really love them though. I love to doodle and journal and these are great. They take a couple seconds to dry so don't touch the wet ink right away, it will smear. I had to learn the hard way. These are a really great product though.

These make drawing so much fun! They roll on so smooth and write beautifully on all my paper. I'm not a great artist, but these make pretending to be one easy! They have a variety of great colors and puff up for easier viewing on your layout! I use these over and over and would buy them again!!

Love love love these pens! I can use them for a wonderful effect in my acrylic album pages. I use Staz-on ink to stamp an image then when dry, I use the glaze pens to color in the image
-just beautiful! A fun way to color acrylic
I was very hesitant to buy pens without trying them first but I'm glad I did, because work perfectly fine!! Be aware that is not a fine point pen, but still there are so many uses!!! The end result is a glossy look, beautiful!!
These pens flow so nicely, and even the dark colors show up on dark paper!! I find them very easy to journal with, and the effect just pops off the paper, giving a unique twist to journaling.

These pens are really awesome ... love how they write and show up on black cs, pictures, etc ... occasionally the white pen hasn't been consistently fluid but ... I still love them!

I used these to color in the jelly beans on my Christmas cards! They were perfect. Remember to use a pigment ink when using these on stamped images so it doesn't bleed.

I wish they lasted longer! I have to replace my Glaze pens almost as often as I have to replace my adhesive but they are worth it. They're perfect for working on something small like a card where you don't want the big show of "real" embossing. Do make sure you allow plenty of time for the ink to dry though, especially if you decide to add a second layer of ink (not needed often, maybe with white ink on black cardstock).

It took me a while to get myself to buy these, as they are a bit expensive in my eyes. But, oh my, they are so fun! I love the black for bold journaling, and use them all the time to accent designs in patterned papers. Even the clear pen is kind of cool to use to bring a shine to draw attention. I'm sure I will be buying many of these, as I'm using them all of the time now!

I do like how smoothly the ink flows from these pens, however, I was disappointed at the lack of 3D effect. It's actually quite non-existent. If you run your fingers over the journaling, you'll feel a slight raise, but that's about it. Otherwise, as a journaling or doodling pen, it's fantastic.

I bought these thinking I might be able to use them with some stencils since I'm a lousy artist and truthfully not very creative either. Well, this was a bad call. They are way too wet and tend to bleed all over the page. I think they might be great if you can draw well free hand for design or print well, but I can't do either, so this was a bust. Too bad.
I bought these a while ago and never used them until now. NOW I love them and use them in many of my layouts as well as with my stamping (I'll outline the stamp and it gives it almost an embossed look).
These pens really start to shine and raise up after they have dried. They just add that extra little "umph" to your page or card. I highly recommend these
I love to use the Glaze pens as a finishing touch to colored-in rubberstamping designs. They can add the perfect shine or reflection to an image to make it look complete.
They also dry slightly raised to give a faux heat embossed look. I used these quite often for that look because embossing powders tend to mess with my eyes too much.
These rule! They had just a pop of glaze. The clear one is perfect for adding glaze on areas to small to squeeze liquid glazes onto. I use these all the time to accent pp and everything else. They right on almost anything too! I'm on my third set and getting ready to buy a fourth.
You don't get much better than these pens. I almost bought a second set as it will be a crisis if they run out and I don't have a back up. I don't think I have created a page since I've had them that I haven't used them on. They write well, dry fast, what more could you ask for?
These pens are a great alternative to heat embossing. They go on smooth and evenly - giving the raised appearance of embossing without the trouble of powders and heat guns!
