Have you tried any of the Kirarina pens yet? I have had a chance to play with a few more of mine and test them out a bit on different surfaces and they are a lot of fun! Kirarina makes several different styles of pens and each is suited for different things. All are fun bright colors that make you want to reach for another to keep playing. I have been using the Kirarina 2Win for a while now in my planner, the highlighter plus coordinating writing end make them absolutely perfect for the job and I love having all m activities color coded 🙂
I am newer to the Kirarina 2win Oil based pens so I really wanted to start by experimenting with the pens to see what and where they would go! Like the 2Win these pens have 2 nibs that are slightly different in color, however unlike the 2 Win the Oil-Based 2Win’s nibs are both small bullet nibs, so no change in size or shape. The Oil-Based pens come in 34 colors (17 pens, each with two colors in them) and a black. The black pen has a bullet nib and a fine tip sketch nib for writing.
The benefit of the Kirarina 2Win Oil based is in the “oil-based” portion of the name. Because this pen is not water based like so many others it will go where others will not.
I tried writing on Photographs:
I also wrote on a very old acetate made for scrapbooking, this one was designed by Fancy pants and I just added the lettering in amongst the doodling that was already on the plastic sheet:
Then I tried adding a little word art onto a plastic page sleeve. To be honest I was going to try a transparency but my entire box of them disappeared and this was the closest thing I could find! I created the word art on a sheet of graph paper:
Then slid it into the bottom corner of the paper protector and went over the lines with me Kirarina 2Win Oil-Based pens, I love how it turned out!
I could see using these on class or a sturdier plastic to hang in a window. The thinner plastic will work great as a layer over a card front or scrapbook page.
I had a lot of fun playing with these new to me pens and will surly come back to them! Imagination International, Inc. carries both of the Kirarina 2Win pen lines and has more fun ideas for playing with them as well.
If you would like to see the Oil-Based in action, I will show you how I made the above projects in a video at Copic In The Craft Room next week!
Have a Happy Colorful Week!
