Dug out some outline stickers - and think these are probably purchased from H/Lobby...they are not the nice Elizabeth Craft stickers. These were quite old, and were difficult to remove from the backing paper. Once outlines were finally placed on the black paper, it was a good way to test the Lunas.
I can already tell I'm going to love these pens. It took me a bit of time to get the color flowing down into the brush tip. If you have any of the W.o.Stella pens, you'll understand what I mean. A center black circular cap must be removed, the ink section gets pierced with a little nib when the 2 sections are put back together; squeeze gently to get the ink flowing down in the section that holds the brush tip. The Luna pens seemed to take more fiddling to get the ink going than did the Stellas, but that's probably Operator Error. I didn't want to get blobs dripping out of the brush, waste this ink, as happened with first use of prepping a Stella pen.
Was very pleased with the results here (aside from the red going over the gold outline. Which according to the SMS video, can be fixed, but this was just a test piece so didn't bother). The blue color was the first try and I was really taken with the brilliance of that color on initial layer. Red & purple were quite faint, as was the lighter green. Gold, silver, copper were better with just a single layer. Layering each section, sometimes using a different color, the tones got brighter & brighter. Each overlay covers the under layer very well - so if you didn't like the first color, you can change it. This effect reminds of me of the enameled costume jewelry I've seen.
Enlarged the butterfly to give a better idea of the intensity of color of the pens. Some of the interconnecting lines on the sticker tore in removal..so this has to just be a test piece. Hence all the different colors of this little insect...just wanted to see how each color looked.
For what it's worth, my review of these new Metallic pens is that they will be an excellent tool to add to your stash of toys!
Have a great day, thanks for popping by, and catch ya later. Hugs.
