I love my Sakura Jelly Roll white gel pen, it is a solid opaque line and never fails me.

I just ran my SU white pen under hot water, the whole metal tip and it is flowing like butter now and not the runny kind, lol. This really worked for me--better than the banging on the table.

Instead of reading all of the pages and I only need to ask one question............how do you properly store them?? Laying down or straight up? I have no clue.

I just found info on Google. It said cap on, either horizontally or vertically is fine. If vertical, gel pens should be stored point facing down. This advice was by a person who has alot of gel pens so I'm trusting the information is correct. Hope this helps.

Default white gel pens

I had the same difficulties with white gel pens. Bought several at different craft stores and still went back to the SU Signo gel pen. If it is dry soak it in very hot water nib down. You may even need to tap it on the bottom of the glass you are soaking it in. This works if the whole pen is not dried out. I have had the best luck storing it vertically with the nib down also.
Hope this helps!

Default Sakura is the best!

As stated previously, Sakura gelly roll pens will not dry up, is even flowing, shows up well and only abt, $1.50. I got my first one 2yrs ago and it is still going strong. When I misplaced it, I got the inkessential (forgive sp)and it is awful. Also the SU uniball whatever is no good.
Once again, Sakura makes the best. OOOOO-OOOO the other colors including a glitter type is lucious....and cheap!

Default unibal

I have been using the signo unibal for years. I tried other pens and was not satisfied with the intensity of the white. This pen works great all the time if you store it vertically, pen nib down and use it often! I use mine at least once a week and never have problems with it clogging or drying up. If you use it rarely, then you will have bad luck. But, I have used a baby wipe to clean the tip and get it flowing again.

The POSCA paint pens are my ultimate favorites. They are very high quality. There are 7 tips available so you can get an assortment from ultra fine to bold. The nibs really feel great - AND they pull out and can be rinsed clear in water or reversed. The bullet shaped tips are great, as the tips narrow down so you can make a fine line. The white is truly opaque and I am THRILLED with these pens. I got extra-fine, fine, and medium. They have a beautiful flow. My friend Molly told me about them and I'm glad she did!

We ordered ours from Durable Supply Company which offers them at a good discount:
Posca Paint Markers

For the little pens, I have tried them all and my favorite is the Sakura Gelly Roll. But I love the beautiful flow of the POSCA pens a lot more.

I have several Uni-Signo pens that have plenty of ink but they won't write. It is like the tips are dried up. Someone mentioned tips to get them going again, how do you do that? Also, I store them horizontally, is that a problem? I go to throw them away but then I get aggravated because they should write, they have barely been used.

The Ranger pens always started skipping on me, I would have to go over a line several times on dark card stock.

I got the fine tip Sharpie white paint pen and after two uses the whole tip assembly cracked and pushed in when I gently depressed the tip to start the paint flow. Ruined my project - I was on a scratch piece but it was next to my project and paint flowed everywhere!

I recently purchased a 3-pack of white Sakura Gelly Roll pens from Joann. Absolutely fantastic!! I love how smoothy it glides across the paper and the white shows up really well against dark color papers. Wanted to add that I also have other colors of Sakura Gelly Roll pens that I purchased a long, long time ago. I want to say they had to have been purchased back in the late 90s, but I cannot say for sure. Believe it or not, they still work!!

I've heard you should store this pen vertically, point down. After my first one died (which I had stored horizontally), I read this advice and have kept the second one vertical and it's much better!!
I do the same and that is what DS said when i called them. I had to be patient and it did start to work. I have also put mine in warm water with the tip down for a few seconds and that seemed to help.

I found a white sharpie poster-paint pen at Mike's and now I am a happy camper. Works every time. I have thrown so many white pens in file 13 and was about to give up on them.

Yes! Lea Everse is one of my favorite artists, she's been published in Somerset Studio and lots of other stamp art magazines. She wrote an article about using them to get an enameled look.
Look at what she did here, there are directions too:
http://stonehousestamps.com/images/c...tructions.html

Gosh, you could use these pens to get that look on anything you want to color and put on a card... a flower... bird.... tree. Ohhhh and Christmas stuff!! I can't wait to try them

I'm sorry, I messed up!! Here is the link where she talks about using the pens! PictureTrail: Online Photo Sharing, Social Network, Image Hosting, Online Photo Albums
She talks about how she accidentally used a white glazed pen instead of a clear one and how as she applied more and more layers it resembled enameling.
All of the Soufle` and some of the Glaze pens are opaque, but some of the Glaze are translucent.

What they mean by "3D" is that they dry with a raised look and feel, like something that has been heat embossed. The Souffle pens are opaque, and the Glaze pens are translucent. The Souffle pens look great on dark paper, and both work very well on glossy surfaces. I love them.

I have not read all of the responses but just thought I'd share a little tip I have recently leArned in an online Strathmore workshop concerning the white gel pen issue. The instructor suggested a correction pen, like white out, sold at office supply stores. So far I am pleased with this suggestion and have even picked up the bottle with the tiny brush(at the dollar store) for a different look. this suggestion might not work for your particular projects but for mixed media projects it has worked like a dream.

Yes I agree. The Sakura GElly Roll is great. Bright and a solid line. Tried one called Recollections signature and it just wasn't bright enough or solid enough for my projects. It was ok if a small space needed white,but not if a signature or writing was needed. Thanks for all the info.

I agree, they look (and feel) great. Yesterday I drew stitches with the Souffle white pen on some kraft cardstock and found it didn't stand out enough, so sponged some distress ink over top and was pleased to find the white pen lines resisted the dye ink. Really made them pop! Maybe everyone knows this except me... but I was happy to discover it.

Default Marie,

I have several white pens/markers and my favorite remains the SU Signo gel pen. I have had great luck with tapping the nib end in very hot water ( place a small amount of water in a custard cup and heat in the microwave...careful not to hot). Leaving this on my desk while working has led to less frustration and more productivity while using the gel pen.

Can someone search for me and give me a few links to the threads? Or let me know what white gel pens you love. I have the SU one and it doesn't work. Has never worked. Not even a tiny bit of white will come out but it's been way too long since I ordered it to return it.

This message is proabably to late for most on this post but to some degree i have revived my gel pens by heating them with my heat gun for just a couple of seconds. Its worth a try before you throw away your pens. Janice

Funny you should say that, I just tried this method the other day----oops got it too hot and melted the plastic inside. I got to throw it away just like I was planning to do because the dang thing wouldn't work!! I'm done with the SU signo. I'm looking for something else. Wish I would have read this thread a couple of years ago and six pens ago.

Can someone please tell me where I can find the methods used to "undry" a stopped up gel pen? Does a lighter work? acetone? Thanks for your help! I have quite a few that Ive used just a few times and they're dried up...or just won't write anymore. Thanks!

I have a real love/hate relationship with white gel pens. I have tried them all and do not have good luck with any of them. I keep 5 different brands just in case one might decide to work smoothly when I need it. I live in the desert (AZ) and wonder if the lack of humidity is a factor.

To lynnephelps: I have tried them ALL and still no CONSISTENT good results, so I just ordered three of the extra fine point paint markers in white and I also ordered 2 extra fine replacement nibs from Durable Supply. Wonderful, low cost pens and low cost shipping - YAY!! A large selection, too. Thanks for sharing this info.

I have completely ditched the white gel pens after coming across the copic opaque white. Wow does this stuff work wonders! I use a tiny tiny paintbrush to put it exactly where I need it and it's flawless. It does take a minute to dry but I don't mind if I get the results I want .

A sharpie poster pen was mentioned pages back would a ZIG writer chalk pen be the same thing do you think? These go on clear and dry white.

I've reorganised my gel pens now hoping to keep them running and not so on and off.

I too had a problem with white pens. In despiration I went to my favorite solution of using a cheap black erasable pen, from Staples, then enbossing it with either white or silver. Works every time. Hope this helps.

White Gel Pen problems - try the new White Picket Fence Distress Marker. They are fabulous. Invisible when you write, but the ink appears a few seconds later. My husband even uses it for his marking when working on dark items in the shed!!

When my white pen doesn't work, I clean the tip to remove any dried ink and it works again. I've tried a couple of brands and have found this is necessary with any of them.
