Make Coloring More Fun with Colored Gel Pens

Updated on November 2, 2015

My Top Choices for Colored Gel Pens

Choosing the right colored gel pens depends on what you want them for so knowing their qualities and drawbacks is a must. Here there are three different kinds of gelly pens showing their strengths when used by artists and craftspeople.

The colors are amazing and the ranges differ in their use and style.

1. Fiskars 12-27457097 Gel Pen is a Great Value 48-Piece Set - By Far the Most Popular Gel Pen

More on the Fiskars 12-27457097 Gel Pen Set of 48 Pens

With 48 pens there are a great variety of colors for your projects with various shade of the main colors.

12 glitter

3 black

9 pastel/milky

9 metallic

9 bright/neon

6 swirl/multi-colored milky

There is the added advantage of also having white and silver pens and of course the beautiful swirl and multicolored pens. The pens glitter and sparkle giving a richness to your work. The pens come in a great little box that is see through and strong so you can see what pen you are choosing.

The colors are very vibrant. It may pay to pop a sheet saver between pages if you are using a coloring book to prevent the ink going on the next page.

2. Amazing Colors of the Sakura 10-Piece Gelly Roll Blister Card Moonlight Gel Ink Pen Set

This set concentrates on the brighter but more pastel ice cream shades. A smaller set for those who want to top up or add colors to their existing sets or for a specific project theme.

Blister Card Moonlight Gel Ink Pen Set

These gelly roll pens are great quality tempera (ie not glossy), the air tight containers keep tem fresh so they don't jump when you begin your pen work. You can even get different types of papers to work better with your pens such as the metallic, souffle, stardust, moonlight ,ect

These pens are great if you love to scrapbook as there is some texture in the glaze and souffle pens.

These pens work particularly well on the very difficult black papers unlike many other pens.

These pens must be allowed to dry before adding a second layer.

What I like about the Zebra's Sarasa Gel Retractable Pen is that they have rubber grips, I struggle with pressure when using writing and drawing equipment so having a grip helps a lot.

These are great for any kind of writing as they have beautiful easy to use points and they do not smear and the multi colors make list making a breeze!

Unlike many sets even the lighter shades are easy to read and are not too pale meaning you get the full use of the sets.

The retractable style of the pens means that they stay in good shape and you cannot lose or break the caps as there are none!
