Glass Dip Pen review

Just before Christmas Jessica from Glass Dip Pen contacted me and asked if I would like to try one of their pens, now I have been really curious about glass pens since I started learning hand lettering and calligraphy so I jumped at the chance!

After browsing the website I picked the blue Nebula pen from their Thor series and Jessica got one sent out to me straight away.  

Protected in it's own fancy box

The pen arrived the first week of January and I have been using it for my lettering practice ever since!

The whole pen is made from glass but it doesn't feel fragile.  The body of the pen is filled with green and blue glitter which reminds me of the sea, it is super sparkly and looks fantastic!

Having never used a glass pen before I was a bit worried about the writing experience but it actually works really well.  

The nib holds plenty of ink

The twist design on the nib holds a lot of ink so you can write quite a bit without having to constantly reload the pen.  This makes it easier to concentrate on the shape and flow of your letters without worrying that you're about to run out of ink.

The Glass Dip Pen is really fun to use!

The tip of the nib is very fine so it is perfect for lettering, sketching and drawing.  It is also easy to make your writing look like calligraphy by drawing an extra set of lines on the down strokes of the letters and then colouring them in like I have done here.

I love how pretty the pen looks

The Glass Dip Pens start around $19.95 USD and standard shipping to the UK is $4.95, making it approx £19 or 22 Euro in total.  There are also sets that include a selection of inks for a little extra, which is great for a beginner or as a gift for someone. 

If glitter is not your thing then there are lots of different styles and designs to choose from, take a look and see what suits you best!

Easy to clean and use

Have you ever used a glass pen before?  Are you interested in trying one now? I'd love to know your thoughts!

Thanks for stopping by!
