Default What's the difference??

In the SU catty, there are both Aqua Painters and Blender Pens.

I have Aqua pens (not SU... got them at Hobby Lobby) and I use them with Watercolor pencils and my chalks. When I read about the Blender pens, they say to use with watercolor pencils and Stampin' Pastels to blend color... How are they different from the Aqua Pens??

They don't have the wet quality that aquapainters do. They are damp, but I find they work nicely on SU's cardstock. The aquapainters are wet enough that I find they do better on watercolor paper. Just my experience.

The blender pens come three to a package. I have been using mine for over two years now, and they are as good as the day I bought them.

Both work well with pastels, pencils, and watercolor crayons.

Blender pens have glycerin in them. It works as a binding agent/sealer. You can use them with any color medium and basically use the blender pen as a marker.
