How do you use baby oil? Will check out the Dollar Tree for the GG, too. Our Wal-mart has the pen on the top shelf with some of the oven and silver cleaners.

GOO GONE.....FABULOUS!!! I tried GG tonight with my Prisma pencils and what a difference. The stump just blended the color with ZERO effort. I'm hooked. This product will be a staple in my stamp room from now on.

Maybe I need to try stumps and the liquid goo gone rather than the pen.

When I first used the pen, I didn't realize that you need to periodically push down on the tip to get it wet. (Works the same as 2-way glue) That made a big difference.

WOW! I finally found the Goo Gone pen at WalMart over the weekend. I bought two...just tried it out tonight, and....did I mention WOW?!?!

I have REALLY struggled with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol...it's possible I'm just not getting the stubs wet enough, but I have never gotten the results I wanted with this technique.

I got GREAT results with the Goo Gone pen. It's sooo much easier, and it really moves the colors around the paper. I am thrilled that the OP passed on this tip to us all. THANK YOU!

My coloring looked like watercolors by the time I was done, with all kinds of fabulous shading and textures. I haven't used my pencils in ages, but I'll be pulling them out more often now!

Mary Lee, I didn't see where any one had answered your question. So, since I think I was the first one to mention it, I will try to answer. You use the baby oil the same way that you would use Gamsol and the Goo Gone. I put my baby oil into a small shallow jar with a lid. I placed several layers of cotton make up circles in the botom of the jar and poured the baby oil on them until they were well saturated. I dip the stump on to the cotton and then I work the magic. I still like using the baby oil the best. But I'm happy we have options. We can each find our own fave.

The type of paper is important---experiment with different brands.

I use the baby oil poured over a sponge (those little slanted ones) and dip the stumps that way. I can't wait to find one of these pens though and try it out.

Has anyone tried the Goo Gone pen with SU pencils? I would LOVE to know how that worked if someone can try it.

Ok so here is a dumb question. How do you use these Prisma pencils? Do you color an image and then use GG/OMS to make the shading how you want it?

I just used the GP paper from WalMart and it worked beautifully.

As someone else mentioned, though, you have to push down on the tip of the pen a couple of times to get the Goo Gone to start flowing, and then do that again intermittently to keep it flowing.

Good luck!

Thanks for this little tip! I also was less than satisfied with the pen. I'd decided not to give up too quickly but try again using the liquid with stumps; perhaps that might make a difference. Haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I'm glad to know it might make a difference and it isn't just me!

Pen didn't work for me either. If I have to use the stumps, I would rather just use baby oil since it smells good at least. I don't see a difference between Goo Gone liquid and baby oil as far as coloring results.

I had a curious question... The wheels in my head got turning and believe me that can be very dangerous lol. Why couldnt you put the Gamsol or goo gone whichever you prefer to use into an aquapainter? and use it? Would that work? Any ideas?

Hugs
and thanks for the great information.

Oooh! I was just looking at Gamsol a few minutes ago and pondering tossing it in my shopping card. Thank goodness I came here first. I can't wait to try this out.

I'm not sure that the Aquapainter brush is "firm" enough to move the color around.

The Goo Gone pen tip is almost too abrasive and doesn't seem to move the color easy for me. I tried it out on Papertrey Ink white cardstock and SU WW. Of course it's probably a user thing.

I think that not only would the brush be too soft, but also very wet to the point of being runny. You could always try it, but if it doesn't work, I'm not sure you could clean the oily substance out of your waterbrush enough to be usable for anything else. And the stumps are pretty inexpensive and last like forever.

Okay now maybe I'm being a little biased here...but Gamsol or any OMS works well with this technique for light to dark shading..if Goo Gone is also oil based and moves around the color wouldn't any oil based/non-toxic sunstance give the same results...? I use linseed oil, baby oil, and Gamsol...the oil based sunstances moves color around but also take longer to dry to the touch...I'll try the Goo Gone, but if it's oil based it should still work just as well as the linseed oil....I haven't posted anything in awhile but I'll consider using all of the mediums to see if there is much of a difference..

I'm with Deb. The odor from Goo Gone drives me bananas! I use a low odor mineral spirits - small amounts at a time in a shot glass - and it doesn't bother me at all.

Glad you you found a solution that works for you. <puts a laundry pin on her nose>

I know that you don't have to use a sealant on your work if you use gamasol. Do you need to use a sealant with the baby oil or goo gone?

I don't use a sealant on my baby oil work...I let it air dry or use the heat embosser to speed up the process. It also depends on the paper you are using. I use The Smooth Bristol By Canson or GP. I couldn't find GP in Canada anywhere and my hubby came accross it by chance at a clearance warehouse and picked up the rest of their stock so I'm good for a long time ...Not sure if the others use a sealant

Ok I am new to using the pencils, do you use the Goo Gone, Gamsol or Baby oil instead of water when you are blending? And if you use baby oil how much do you us and dosn't it leave an oil mark on your paper? Speaking of paper do you have to use watercolor paper with these products or can you use cardstock? Any help that I could get would be greatly appreciated as I have watercolor pencils (Rexel Derwent and Faber-Castell) that I got a long time ago and really would like to use them. Thanks in advance.

I think the thread was more based on the prisma color premier pencils/ pencil crayons and such...I have no watercolor pencils so I've never used this technique with them. I'm sure someone else will be able to help with that tho...

If there are two kinds of goo gone, which one works. I have the orangey one? Will that work as well. Can't wait to try this.

I have two questions I am wondering about.. 1. Has anyone used the baby oil jel yet. I read before that it was easier to
contol the drips. I have bought some but haven't tried it yet. I have big problems with allergies too, oderless doesn't help
if its the chemical causing the allergy--I suspect that is why one of the ladies
previously mentioned she got head achs with oms.

2. I also wondered if anyone had tried plain mineral oil? I was thinking about that as we used to use it to 'paint' wooden toys for children with it and it
has no smell at all and is not toxic. Do you think this would work?? Any one
have any around to try this out? Seems like if it worked good, it would
solve any allergy or smell issues.

Oh, I do have another question(s) about stumps. I heard they are only good
if they are the ones from a certain country. Which are the 'good' ones?
Do any of the stores like m's and j's, Roberts or H.L. carry them? Is there
anything else that works besides stumps?

The creative mark stumps are really good. I tried the goo gone. I wasn't really that impressed. Let oil marks? Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

Finally got around to trying this and I am in love

I bought the pen and didn't really care for it just because it seemed to get the paper too wet. Instead I pressed the tip of the pen into a water bottle cap to release some of the goo gone, then dipped my stump in the fluid and it worked out great

I went to the store tonight to buy a bottle of goo gone instead of the pen but all they had was the gel. I bought it and hope its the same thing or works the same

Thanks again to the OP, and everyone else for their tips!!

anything else that works besides stumps?
Michael's carries stumps from China. I've used both those and some from Taiwan, which I bought at a LSS. The ones from Taiwan seem to be a little bit softer. I didn't really notice any major difference in using them, but some will tell you one or the other is better. I think maybe it's just a personal preference. They're inexpensive, so it really doesn't hurt to try both yourself.
