This is the only pen that I have seen that does not dry out the next day you buy it. The ink does not seep into you paper. It writes like paint. I ran out of ink before it dried up on me. It is a must have to do those highlights for paper piecing. Free shipping if you order with the kits, or only .60 cents if you want just the pen. We cannot get a good image for the gold pen it is the same as the white one but with gold ink.
