Regular readers will know what we have been working with John Adams recently to celebrate the launch of their JA Craft Club Facebook page. We have already had lots of fun reviewing Pixelo Neon and eZee Beads 3D Mini Scenes. This week it was time for some glittery fun with BLO Pens Glitter Studio.
BLO Pens Glitter Studio from John Adams has an RRP of £24.99 and suitable for ages 6+. The set comes with everything you need to create airbrush and glitter effects. Here’s what you get.
5 coloured BLO Pens.
4 glitter tubes & holder.
A box that turns into an easel with storage slots for pens and glitter tubes.
Daisy chose a heart stencil to start with. It does take a little time to push the shapes out to create the stencil before you begin. Once the stencil was in place it was time to choose a colour, the pens can be used as ordinary pens to draw with as well as BLO pens. Turning the pen is really easy to do, just make sure you turn them back inwards when you have finished to save the ink drying out.
BLO Pens are super easy to use and the effects you can create with them are amazing. Daisy loved using the pens, I did have to remind her to stop blowing so hard so she didn’t end up out of breath.
I love that the box turns into an easel, having a ready-made workstation is very useful indeed. Jake also had a go of the pens without the easel and for this I would definitely recommend covering the table as a little mess is inevitable.
Daisy wanted to add some glitter effects to her picture so after applying some glue she got to work with the glitter tube and holder.
Daisy was really happy with her finished design and decided she wanted to freestyle without the stencils. I love the designs and effects you can create with the BLO Pens. We didn’t get round to doing any of the projects included in the set this time. Daisy definitely wants to make the dragonfly next time to hang in her bedroom.
