White Ink Pen Comparison – Part 1: Gel Pens


JetPens presents a White Ink Pen Comparison. Part One — Gel Pens. White ink pens are a great tool for adding a unique touch to your
project. In particular, white gel pens are loved by artists, scrapbookers, and designers for their fine, consistent lines. In addition to writing, they can be used to add highlights
and accents to drawings, or for spot correction of small mistakes. They also open up a wide range of colored papers that are too dark to write on with conventional ink colors. When selecting a white ink gel pen, it is important to consider the pen’s opacity. Less opaque inks allow underlying colors to show through, resulting in a more subtle effect. They’re great for adding highlights on top of other inks, but for the best contrast, you’ll want a pen with higher opacity. Let’s take a look at our top five white ink gel
pens The Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip, the Sakura Gelly Roll, the Sakura Souffle, the Sakura
Glaze, and the Uni-ball Signo Broad. Among these five, the Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip and the Sakura Gelly Roll are the easiest to use. They are the least opaque, but they provide smooth and consistent lines and can be used just like any other gel pen. The Sakura Glaze and Sakura Souffle use a special 3-D ink that creates an embossed effect as it dries, adding both visual and tactile interest to your work. The Glaze has a smooth, glossy texture, while the Souffle has a softer, almost powdery look. You’ll need to use these pens slowly to
get the best effect, and it can take up to several minutes for them to dry completely. The Uni-ball Signo Broad combines high opacity and fast drying time, making it our most popular white gel pen. Just be careful not to go too fast,
or else the ink flow may stall. If it does, some quick scribbling should get it going again. White gel pens aren’t limited to just black paper. Colored papers, envelopes, and cards are all
great canvases for a white gel pen. Use it on Kraft paper for a subtle, refined effect. White gel pens can also be used as correction pens on white paper. You can see here how well each of these pens cover up lines made by Copic and Sakura Pigma Micron markers, With all the creative uses for white ink gel pens, it’s no wonder that they are so popular among artists and crafters. Add a unique touch to your next project with white ink gel pens, available at JetPens.com Be sure to check out Part Two of the White Ink Pen Comparison, where we’ll be covering white ink markers.

    Do these gel pens or any of them work over pencil crayons/waxy pigments? I want to use it for my pencil crayon drawings, would it work or just not adhere?

    Hi, I am so glad I found this video!  I did watch the video in its entirety, but I have a question because I want to be sure I get "the right pen" for me.  Can you please tell me which pen you would recommend (the exact name of the pen) for correcting on white paper?  You did say "white gel pens" but I'm wondering which one, specifically.  I stamp (on white paper) and on some occasions, I get a very thin black line from the skirt of the stamp.  I am looking for something that I can use to just go over and "white: it out.  Thank you so much for any suggestions.

    I've been drawing with colored pencils a lot and I blend them with other colored pencils. I'd my eyes on the Sakura gelly roll and the uni-ball signo broad. Which do you recommend that will work for colored pencils? ^^

    How effective is the Uni Ball Signo Broad on graphite? Anyone know?
    I'm thinking of using it for highlights over pencil portraits.

    I draw a lot of anime characters, so which white gel pen would you recommend for highlights in the hair? Which one is the most opaque?

    I have a question, I use pens to color in (it's hard but I find it nice for my style) and I could use a white pen to add highlights on my eyes that I make with sharpies. What would you recommend to draw over a Sharpie with?

    I need a white ink pen (or marker) with a fine tip for detailed light effects over colored pencils or other.
    I tried a Uni-ball Signo Angelic but the ink flow is irregular and often doesn't work.
    What do you recommend?

    Thanks.

    Should have watched this before buying the pilot poplol white cause they are technically 0 opaque and seeps into the darker ink 😣😣

    I've been using Signo White Gel Pens for years. The first time I use one, perfection! Next time, it does not release any ink. I've tried probably everything to get it working again. So while it has fantastic opacity and smoothness, I can only get one use out of it. Very expensive to keep buying them and get one use. The others I have, but just don't compare when it comes to coverage. Why oh why do these pens keep cementing/locking up? How do we get the ball to roll once more?

    Whenever I use it as a correction pen (uniball signo broad) it smudges the ink, and becomes grey.

    You couldn't do a video for gold and silver metallic pens could you? With it being almost Christmas, that would be SO useful. Thanks!
