I've had Spica pens for a long time and brought them out again to color some detailed coloring pages that were included in my planner for 2017. I tried gel pens and everything else and I like the Spica pens the best because they are somewhat translucent and I love their shimmer. But they are opaque enough to fill in the details. They are a pleasure to color with and I can even blend with them if I work in small areas and work while the ink is wet. My latest set was purchased for my daughter to color her planner. I've had my set literally for years and most of them still have ample ink in them.
I love these! After a scrap weekend with friends, I had to order another set because they all wanted to use them. I especially like journaling with them, but also use them on my coloring pages and to accent certain pieces. I have not found other pens like these - they don't clump or sputter but write smooth and evenly. I love glitter!!!!!!!!
I highly recommend these pens they add just the right amount of glitter and they make the difference really on the embellishments and make the projects look awesome. I am so happy to have them. Good quality!!!!
