I bought some I forgot what the exact name is, but the tips on these pens are long & I hate them. They are kinda hard to use ...When I go back I plan on buying the ones that have a blunt tip just like a pen/marker

I bought some at Michaels, I think it had blue, black, red, green and maybe yellow. Cant remeber the name. But I didnt like how it turned out. I didnt like them! It kind of smugded all over.

I kind liked the ones I got.. I purchased them at McCalls they worked well, not smudgey... great on fondant and gumpaste... I dunno, maybe some brands are better than others??

I used Gourmet Writer from Americolor...they are fine point and very nice to write with.. If you are coloring something in, you may want more of a blunt tip, but these are great for writing.....

I have the Wilton blunt tip and I hate them. I have the Americolor fine tip on order though. I've heard good things about them. I think the brand will definitely make a difference. HTH
