- Prior to first use - Shake it then place pen tip down in a container and leave tip down for at least 24 hours prior to use:
- Remove the cap. Press the pen in a downward motion to have the felt go into the pen to begin the wicking process.
- When ready to use your pen DO NOT SHAKE IT! Leave the pen tip-down and depress the tip onto a flat surface. I use a glass palette.
- Hold tip to the surface for 30 to 60 seconds, occasionally pressing the tip down then lift a bit to allow the tip to go up and down to help the flow of the material.
- Once the tip is completely filled with material the pen is ready to use.
- Draw using the pen like a normal pen.
- The material goes on dark burgundy hue and then after it is fired in the kiln it becomes vibrant.
*Make sure to store the pen TIP DOWN to ensure material is near the tip for future use.
