Playing with the Silhouette Pen Function

My pen holder for my Silhouette Cameo finally arrived this week.  YEAH!!!  So what's a girl to do, but play with all the pens I could find in my craft room.

I have decided I love the Uni-ball white pen!  It flows on the paper so smoothly whether it is black, white or purple - it looks great!

I have also fell in love with Infinity Neon Fine tip pens.  The pens are vibrant and no skipping at all - smooth clean lines!!!

Unfortunately I was not impressed with all the Silhouette Sketch pens I purchased.  The gold and silver would not write a smooth line (maybe they were old pens, but I only purchased them a month ago).  The other colors I purchased worked about 50% of the time.  The red, blue and purple worked fine, but the orange, yellow and pink were very disappointing.  Skipped and the yellow you can barely see on white paper.

Take a look at my tests and you can judge for yourself.

Used the Uni-ball white gel pen.

Please feel free to leave a comment with your experiences using the pen feature on the Silhouette.  Happy crafting!!!
