Pearl Pen Tutorial


A long-awaited topic! Lots of you have asked me to do a pearl pen tutorial showing you how to keep a card with pearl pen from sticking together or smashing in an Operation Write Home box, as well as how to keep them from getting that hershey kiss shape when lifting the pen off the surface. When requests come in so strongly, I just can’t resist – love your feedback! Plus, my awesome supporters over on Patreon voted up the pearl pen idea….so here we go! Watch the video below, or check it out on YouTube in HD by clicking HERE.

Below are stills of each of the cards shown in the video, along with the Copic colors used in the images. All the supply links are at the end of this post.

  1. I don’t own any pearl pens. But I have been thinking about getting some. Thanks for the info. I really enjoyed the video.

  2. Thanks for the tutorial. Very informative!!

  3. Thanks for the pearl pen tutorial, very helpful. I would like you to show how to refill a copic pen , I want to order refills but I am afraid I won’t know how to do it. I am a person that learns by seeing it done. Also Stampin Up has very thin embellishments
    in every color you would want and they are called candy dots. I do not sell SU but I buy some of their products. Have a great day!

  4. Thanks for this tutorial. I love my pearl pens , but don’t always get great results. I will try out your tips!

  5. Thought for a future video…How to use Godspeed on a Non-Any Hero card? We all know what a great stamp it is for Any Hero mail. Is there a way to use it for other types of cards?

  6. I love my Pearl Pens!

  7. Love the video, especially learning how to deal with points on my pearls (and also seeing that close up they are not all perfectly round and the same size!).
