How to Use (Step by Step)
- Install Batteries, Cartridge
To begin using your Imagipen, install batteries as per the instructions, and slide in either your green or blue ink cartridge, making sure the skinny tip is facing the top of the pen.
- Start Drawing
To draw with your Imagipen, aim the pen at a flat surface, making sure it's not touching the surface but is resting about a couple of inches above. Press the lever you'll find on the side of your pen down, and gel will start splurting out. As it does so, the pen's built-in lights will cause it to harden into plastic-like material.
- Display Creations
Once you're done making something with your pen, you may want to display it on a flat surface. Unfortunately, there's no easy way to melt your creations down into gel again, so you'll need to use your gel carefully.
- No Electricity Required
You won't need electricity to operate your Imagipen, so you won't need to worry about finding an available electrical outlet or dragging around an extension cord. ( However, you will need to obtain your own batteries ).
This pen is much larger than a standard pen, making it able to hold much more gel than the amount of ink that can be held in an ordinary pen. It's about the size of, and resembles, a hair straightener.
- Two Sticky Gels Included
With each pen, you'll get a cartridge full of green gel and a cartridge full of blue gel, so you won't need to make everything you want to with the same color. Each color of gel will stick to almost any surface.
- Comes With Fun Guide
If you're not sure what to make first with your Imagipen, or you're not quite sure of your technique, you can consult the included Fun Guide for help and / or inspiration.
- Works Quickly
The gel that comes from this pen will dry in seconds after it has splurted out of the device. Therefore, you won't have to wait for hours or even several minutes to see what your finished creations will look like.
- No Heat Needed
Heat does not need to be applied to the Imagipen's gel for it to dry—the light from the pen is enough. A lack of heat makes the pen much safer for children, as this eliminates the risk of accidental burns.
- Encourages Creativity
When using this pen, everyone will be able to exercise their creativity in order to make almost anything under the sun. You may wish to make animals, birds, jewelry, monsters, or castles, or decorate an already-existing object such as a notebook, toy, or cell phone case.
- Makes Great Gift
An Imagipen will make a great gift for virtually any child over the age of six, regardless of the occasion. If you're having a party, you might even want to set up the pen and let every guest of an appropriate age give it a try.
It's best if kids of preschool age do not use the Imagipen, at least not without adult supervision. They may be too young to understand that it's unsafe to put the gel in one's mouth, and if ingested, it could be harmful to a child.
