Vendor Spotlight & Giveaway!: Sakura Glaze Pens – New Colors!!

Reported by Erin Bassett
I’m so happy to be able to share with you two new colors of Sakura Glaze Pens that were sent to me to try out. The colors are Real Red and Deep Green. Perfect for both holidays and the days in between!!

Photo courtesy of Sakura
These pens work on a variety of surfaces. I’ve tried them on cardstock, ceramic, acrylic, plastic, and metal.
Using them on ceramic and other slick surfaces is really fun! Sakura sent me this ceramic disk to play with and I thought it would look nice with a henna type design on it.
After finding design ideas from The Henna Page, I uncapped the pen, removed the tiny tip protector, and began to doodle. You have to write much slower on surfaces like this so that the ink will flow onto your piece correctly; if you write too quickly your lines will not be solid and may bead up.
If you make a mistake you can usually wipe it off if you act immediately because the ink is water-based and has a slight open time. Once you are finished with your design you need to allow it to dry on a flat surface.
I love how this ink looks when it’s dry on the ceramic! You can see and feel a 3-D raised texture and it’s nice and shiny.
Because the ink has an embossed quality it makes it great to use with Glimmer Mist since it acts as a resist. For this tag I took a regular shipping tag from an office supply store and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I then doodled on in with my Real Red Glaze Pen. After my ink dried I sprayed it with multiple colors of Glimmer Mist and right away I could see the glaze pen resist the Glimmer Mist.

I also used the pen on some Making Memories clear flowers that are made out of a thin plastic. Like the ceramic, I had to write slowly and allow for extra drying time.

When dry the flowers also had the raised, glossy effect.

When used on Bazzill cardstock the pen’s ink soaks into the paper a little bit but also has an almost embossed look to it with it’s slightly raised, glossy look.

One of the coolest things I used the glaze pen on was metal. It looks makes the metal look like it is covered with enamel.
I took a piece of Vintaj metal and ran it through my Cuttlebug to give it a design with my initial. I then just traced over the raised part of the design that contained the “E” and allowed it to dry. -So pretty!
Pros:
  • Inexpensive way to add color and dimension to projects
  • Can be used on a multitude of surfaces
  • 3-D glossy effect
  • Waterproof on most surfaces
  • Water-based and odorless
Cons:
  • Has a 1.0 roller ball tip so it’s hard to doodle details in tiny areas
  • On slick surfaces you have to write slowly
  • Have to allow time for drying
  • Prolonged contact to plastic may cause transfer (per manufactures documentation)
Cost: $4.50 for a two pack

    The Sakura Glaze pens have worked great for use on handmade artist books, hand painted papers, addressing envelopes using monoline calligraphy, hand made 3D pop-up cards and drawings on mat board.
    Sadly, the markers dried out rather quickly in this dry desert and I haven’t been able to replace mine.

    A long time ago I got a two pack of these pens — they came with metallic outline stickers — and thought they were kinda fun. But after seeing the project on metal, well, WOW! That alone would be worth getting these for. I’m thinking jewelry, keychains, etc… 🙂

I think they’d be great for using on all kinds of surfaces, but I think I would use them mostly on plastics or other surfaces that you couldn’t use traditional heat embossing methods on for fear of them melting/burning.

    i LOVE these pens! I use black the most. I’ve gone through quite a few of them in the past year. I like to use them on my die cuts of animals…looks great for eyes and noses…sometimes when i stamp a greeting and its too light, I will go over the letters with one of these pens. I have also used them on an acrylic book. These are great!

    I have, and constantly use, the Sakura Glaze pens. Everything they touch turns out amazing. I love the clear pen (I’m on my 6th or 7th), because I can color with chalk and glaze over it. Of course, it’s much easier to work with just the pen and I can see the new colors are going to be a great addition to the great color sets already available. I really love the green on the metal.
