Can anyone tell me the use of a water pen? I wish there was some kind of disappearing ink type of pen we could use on fondant, so when we are applying ruffles and such we could just draw, and not worry that themarks would still be there. Is there such a beast?
ive never heard of them for cakes, BUT i have seen such items in craft stores etc, where you fill them water for water colour pencils and use it like a paint brush, i suppose you could fill it with vodka instead and have like a hand y preloaded brush
Ruth Rickey introduced me to qater pens. She was in a gumpaste class I was taking, like she needed them . Anyway, you get them at the craft store and they work a charm to get fondant and gumpaste to stick. The pen tip is like a brush and gets barely damp to dripping wet depending on how you squeeze it. They are perfect. I love mine!
So more control in applying water, than say a paint brush. Ahhhh.. I get it! Thanks!
I know Stamin' Up (cards/scrapping) sells a really nice one, my mom & I use it all the time in pencil water coloring.
They totally suck for using with gum glue, though. Waste of 7 bucks, IMO.
