Default SU Blender pens

Hi,
Anyone know if you can use the SU blender pens with the Pebbles shimmer chalks? Need to know before I purchase as I have sold the SU chalks, and would not have any other chalks to use them with. TIA. Linda

Yes. I use mine with it. I'll use the blender pen with watercolors or prisma's and then use it to add sparkle/glimmer with using the blender pen with the pearlescent chalks over what I just colored. Though I would use one pen just for the chalks, as the glitter tends to stay on the blender pen and come off on other things if you use it for something else. I love using mine this way though. HTH!

Thanks, actually glitter elsewhere wouldn't be too bad either. Anyone else?

Just a general chalking tip --- when using a blender pen with chalks, always use the same corner of the chalk so that if you should ever want to apply the chalk by another method, it is in it's original form (blender pens are a little wet which does not harm the chalk but can change it --- i.e. make it less powdery).

My favorite way to use chalks is to apply VersaMark ink to cardstock and then go over with chalks using a cotton puff.

The Shimmery chalks look nice but I don't have them yet. Would you mind posting any tips you discover about the differences between them and other chalks (if any besides the shimmer)?

TIA and ...

Happy Crafting!

You can also use a versamarker with chalks, and I've used it with the shimmer chalks and it works great!
