HUMAN TORCH AND THE THING by ChrisSamnee HUMAN TORCH AND THE THING by ChrisSamnee
Trying out a couple new white-out pens here.

So far I really dig the PENTEL PRESTO! POCKET CORRECTION PEN. It'll cover any ink with a single coat but it's pretty glossy after it's dried and, so far, I've only been able to get a Pentel PITT pen to stick to it's surface.

The BIC WITE-OUT is almost the same as the PRESTO! but has a sharper tip. Just a warning to the heavy-handed among you.

The SHARPIE POSTER-PAINT (extra-fine point) would be at the very top of my list, since it make the best line and for the most part covers pretty well, but being water based means I can only use it with certain inks without a big grey puddle ending up on the page.

Anybody else have a favorite white-out pen they'd recommend?.

Adam hughes uses prismacolour white pencils, but they seem to cover very well so maybe he uses a wax version?

Hm. That's probably just for highlights but it might be something to look in to...

well, Dave Williams uses a 'gel pen' [link] but it might be some fancyass gel pen that only a few people know about, maybe you can email him and ask him but I have no idea how he gets such crisp white from a gel.

I've never been a fan of white out pens because of clogging issues, water based etc. I usually do my whites white Pro-white and an old windsor newton No. 7 I've had for years.

I've ended up using a lot of pens lately mainly because the line I've been trying to achieve in my inks is from the Pentel Brush Pen. Their ink is water based, so just about everything tends to muddy up with it. Guess I should just learn not to make mistakes. Sigh.

I never break the seal of my Pentels because the ink sucks so bad. I dip them in Speedball ink.

Huh. I guess I never even thought about just dipping it. Good call, Mitch :D

Well you have it all over me in terms of shadows as form. you know me, I'm more line oriented so it's less work when it comes to fixes. I've just never found a correction pen that made me happy.
