Jane Davenport Mixed Media Paint Over Pens

(Source)




Jane Davenport Paint over Pens are a collection of five pens filled with a fast drying acrylic paint. They look exactly like a marker or a pen but they contain acrylic paint. There are various types of paint pens on the market but what makes the JDMM Paint Over Pens unique is that there is no shaking the pen with each use and no pressing down to release color.  At first you have to give the pen a little shake to but then you are good to go. 

When dried they are matte, opaque, archival, and waterproof. Sounds pretty good, right?  

The set contains five colors beach (flesh tone), mermaid (blue), starfish (pink) and unicorn (white). There's two unicorn pens, a small tip & broad tip.

I opened them up and started trying them out. The color is vibrant and lays down smoothly. It doesn't smell and takes only a few minutes to dry. Once dried it equally as pigmented as they are when they are wet and it is matte, so you can draw on top of if you want. 

The unicorn pens are a very soft white more for subtle highlights. If you want a stark white  highlight you're better off going with the Sharpie White Paint Pen. 

The only thing I wish for these pens would be for them to come in more colors, I think that would be a lot of fun.
