Default Tsukineko Fantastix Coloring Tool Use

Another inquiry question, how do you use the Tsukineko Fantastix Coloring Tool? Can it be used just by itself? Do you dip it into something to use it? Does it require cleaning after use and how? In what techniques does it lend itself for best use? Prismacolor pencils, watercolor? Please help this confused sole. Thanks.

Lauren, (Mytime) has a nice tutorial on her blog about these; I had bought them thinking I could use them like a blender pen but still haven't opened the pack! Here's the tuturial for you; maybe a refresher will give me the kick I need to break mine out too!

You can use them just like a pen or marker you just have to "pick up" the ink or paint to get it on the tip.

One tip that someone shared with me....don't leave these submerged in water or ink...the liquid will pull up into the stick...this is only important if you are going to try to recycle them like I do.

Thank you so much for the link, Kathy. I have seen these in a store - probably Michael's - and had no inklin what they were for. Now I need to go get me some!!

I use mine with Odorless Mineral Spirits. They work really well, and I can go from one color to another after rinsing them in the OMS. Since they absorb the liquid, I just leave them in the dish drain to dry overnight, after I wash them out. I haven't had any problems yet.
