How To Use I DO 3D Ultra Pens Set
To say my daughter couldn’t wait to get the I DO 3D Ultra Pens open and to use them would be an understatement.
To start the pens and nibs need to be screwed together and the twist close nibs also need to be opened. You also need to pop the pen you are using into the 3 bulb UV light which sets the gel when you are drawing. The instructions indicate that you can use the pens with the bulb so it sets straight away, great for using it vertically, or you can use without and go over your design later with the bulb.
The set comes with a plastic tracing sheet which you use to make your masterpiece. There are also templates which you can put under the sheet and trace over to make a design. You will also find a little tool on the mould tray that can help smooth the design and get it off the sheet.
As soon as my daughter saw the unicorn template she decided this would be her first project. She started by using the pens with the bulb but found she wasn’t fast enough and the gel was setting too quick for her and found it easier to trace without.
Although this made it easier for her to draw her design it did take a bit of time for her to get it to set afterwards, especially as she used a bit too much gel. As a result, she tried to move it before it was set and couldn’t get it to stand up.
The pens can also be used freestyle to make your own designs. After drawing the unicorn flat she was keen to try drawing vertically. With the bulbs turned on you need to slowly squeeze the gel out, making sure it sets as you go.
It was easier to get the gel to stand vertically than I would have thought but does need some practice to get it precise. This didn’t deter my daughter who was so excited when she managed to make her first 3D design.
The set also comes with a plastic mould tray however my daughter was enjoying drawing vertical designs she hasn’t tried these yet.
What We Thought I DO 3D Ultra Pens
My daughter has really enjoyed using the I DO 3D Pens. They are easy to pick up and to start to use straight away but do need some practice to make really intricate designs.
Even after the gel is set enough to stand upright it does still feel sticky but this is easily removed with soapy water and nearly as messy as I thought it would be.
My daughter has not stopped using the pens since we opened them. She managed to make quite a few designs before the gel ran out and plans on asking for the bigger set for Christmas.
