Default white gel pen option

I too have trouble with the white gel pen. My solution is the new Ranger Picket Fence marker. Clear when you write and turns to white - fabulous. My hubby even uses it for marking dark things in the garage

I find if I warm up the white pen it help. I just put it in hot water for 2 minutes. Then roll between hands. I need to find another pen, tired of fighting with the Sukra.

Just found the perfect white pen, Faber Castel Pitt artist pen. Gina K. used it in her last card video. It works brilliantly!

I use white gel pens to add details to my drawings and finding a good one is tricky. I now use a Sakura jelly pen, so far its covered markers, pencil and paint in varying colours.

I may have to check Staples! I bought their Pentel Gold and Silver pens and they are awesome. Never thought to look there for a white!

Try storing your gel pens upside down. I find that it helps the gel flow easier since gravity has caused the gel to run to the tip of the pen. Since I've been storing my (old) pens that way they write smoothly.

Default Tip for unclogging a gel pen

A few weeks ago, my white Gelly Roll gel pen stopped working. I really like this pen, and it was 3/4 of the way full of ink, so I thought I would try to get it going again. I pulled off the tip with a pair of needle-nose pliers. (I suggest doing this slowly over a paper towel or rag.) Then I pulled out a wad of "gunk" that was inside the tip. It was like dried-up glue - presumably the gel. I pushed the tip back on the pen and tried it. It now works better than it did when I first bought it!

So, before you throw away your next clogged gel pen, give this a try. I hope it works for you too.

Good tip! I've tried removing the whole inside of the pen and holding the metal tip in hot water. Sometimes it worked and often it didn't. I did end up with some watery color with gunk in the center. Messy! I'm glad it worked for you and it gives me hope in my future attempts at gel pen resuscitation.

I wonder how many of us are thinking if only we had know this before we threw out the last one or the one before that. Thanks for sharing, will save this tip, much appreciated.

I know what you mean, Ailhelen. I wish I had thought of this before. But better late than never, right? I hope it works for others as well as it worked for me. Now I have to be careful that too much ink doesn't flow out of the tip when I'm using it.

Add me to the list of frustrated pen-tossers! I would still have my souffle pens, no doubt... Thanks for this tip - I will definitely have to try it!

I unclogged another one tonight. My light blue Glaze Pen seemed a little dry. I pulled off the tip, and there was a long, solid chunk that I was able to just pull out of the pen. Good as new! One thing I should clarify is that you need to pull the silver metal tip itself out of the pen, not the white collar.

I just tried this on two of mine, it didn't work, yet they are full of ink. I don't get it but sure do have bad luck with white pens.

A gal told me not to shake my pen, but roll it between my two palms "to warm it". I tried non working gel pens various brands and it worked for me. If it hasnt been used for a long time, warm water run over can some times help.

Any chance you can do a video? I'm sure I have 3 or 4 clogged pens in my stash :/.
