Got this thing because of the video. Was a bit skeptical. Just wasn't convinced this thing was going to work. So, imagine my surprise when it not only worked, but was wayyyyy more controllable than other ink spattering devices. When you use the ink sprays, control is an issue. It doesn't always go where you want it to go. With this device, you have much better control over where you are spraying, and the depth of color. If you focus the point close to the paper, the darker the ink. The further away from the paper, the lighter the ink. It was really nice to use a device that had better direction as to where the ink was going. No doubt, you have to play around with the pens a bit, but if you use the brush end of the markers, it really does a nice job of spreading the ink where you want it. With other techniques, it doesn't always go where you direct it.
I really love this Distress Marker Spritzer Tool. I find I am too heavy handed with regular spritzers like the Tattered Angels. I always get my project too blotchy with them. This tool allows a much lighter spritze of color where I want it or if I want more concentration, I hold it much closer to the project. You can get as little or as much spray effect as you want. It works great for me.
THIS TOOL IS WONDERFUL FOR JUST ADDING A TOUCH OF COLOR TO YOUR PROJECTS. VERY EASY TO USE, AND CAN BE USED WITH A VERY WIDE VARIETY OF INK PENS. YOU CAN SPRITZ THE COLOR ON REAL LIGHT, OR MAKE IT DARKER, AND MORE INTENSE. I AM HAVING A BLAST WITH THIS TOOL. THIS IS ANOTHER MUST FOR CRAFTERS/SCRAPBBOOKERS, YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS NEWEST TOOL OF TIMS.
I have not had a chance to use the spritzer extendly but in a short tryout I am impressed with this product. I have wondered, "How come I didn't think of this before." It's a great product and much need to add a higher level of production. It arrived very quickly and as usual it is a joy working with Scrapbook.com.
I tried this on some of my regular markers. Since I don't have any Tim Holtz Distress markers yet. I have to say it works well on any kind of marker you have. I really like this tool and still learning to see what other markers can work well with this tool.
Used in this layout: Welcome to Bay City
purchased new marker to try product again and this time I resulted in a better comment. The spritzer tool was fun to explore with stencils or just random spritzing. Not bad at all!
This is a fantastic product! Don't know how I ever got along without it. I couldn't believe how well it works and how easy it is to use until I tried it myself. You'll love it!
Like one of the other reviewers wrote, I was skeptical of this product until I tried it. I am now hooked! I've purchased loads of color sprayers, most of which clogged up before I was even halfway through with them. I have not had any such problem with this and love it. It's given a new dimension to my cards.
I tried it first with the new distress markers I bought and it did not work. Then I tried it with my sharpies that I have been using a few years and it worked. I guess the markers have to be "worn in" for the air to be able to spritz ink from it?? If you have arthritis, do not use it . . . it made my hands hurt after squeezing it awhile. I hope they come out with an "automated" one soon.
I find this product to be worthless. I tried to use it with the Ranger distress pens (more than one) and couldn't ever get it to work. Going straight in the garbage.
I am very impressed with how great this tool works. Very easy! I have other markers that it works with also like the Marvy and Recollections felt tip markers. You just have to make sure you install the marker properly with the tip in direct line with the air chute. What I like best about his is there is no mess. You can switch colors in an instant and there's no messy clean up between colors. Love it!
Enjoy the product would like more ideas for cards as I have only a limited number of water based pens to use without spending more money . are there any more ways it can be used other than a pen ?
Thank you it is a very good product .
PS I am not very creative or good with the computer so I like plenty of ideas to look over
Unless your pens are brand new and very wet, this thing is not going to work. I have a drawer full of pens that are perfectly good but not wet enough for this thing to work. I would not recommend this to anyone. As it is, I have wasted my money because I certainly am not going to the extra expense of buying new pens.
