New Gelly Roll Moonlight 06 Pen Creates Fine Lines in Opaque, Vivid Inks

Sakura of America is excited to announce the introduction of Gelly Roll Moonlight 06, a new fine point pen in ten bright, opaque colors.  Previously only available in bold point (Moonlight 10), now Moonlight colors are finally available in a fine point (Moonlight 06) to apply eye-catching detail to notes, journals, cards, pattern drawing, invitations, gift tags and craft projects.  Gelly Roll Moonlight can be used by crafters, artists, journalists, and anyone who wants to see bursts of color on light or dark paper.  Moonlight fluorescent colors glow under a black light source, which makes the colors seem to jump off the page.

“Not only do their fine tips and faster drying time allow me more versatility when working on intricate drawings; they also have the flow of a paint pen.  The way the highly pigmented shades of color pop against black paper is absolutely mesmerizing.  The result is the best of both worlds:  impeccably professional and unexpectedly fun!”… Jody Pham, a fine line drawing artist.

The Moonlight 06 fine line allows the ink to dry quicker, minimizing the risk of smearing.  Create fine lines on any artwork and leave a colorful mark that’s uniquely your own.  Regular Moonlight inks are archival, waterproof, fade resistant and chemical proof.  Fluorescent Moonlight inks can fade over time and therefore not suitable for archival applications. 

“They offer the fine line and precision of a Pigma Micron (my favorite pen), while looking so bright and vibrant on both light and dark paper.   Plus, they totally transform into a neon glowing line once you shine a black light on the florescent colors!  These pens are great for a multitude of uses and are sure to surprise and delight anyone who is looking for a little magic in their lives.”…Arley Rose-Torsone, hand lettering artist and owner of Ladyfingers Letterpress.
