Best Gel Pens for Black Paper

One of the things I remember about my childhood was drawing, doodling and coloring in on black paper using the best gel pens. 

This was by far one of my favourite activities as a kid but as I grew older so did the drawing and coloring. Since my obsession with using gel pens on black paper died down it pretty much left my mind and became a forgotten memory.

In recent times there has been a bit of a “coloring in renaissance” if you will, that has emerged and it has now become popular for people of all ages to color in, myself included.

I have taken to this new activity quite well and I have revived my love for one of my favourite childhood hobbies, coloring in on black paper with gel pens. 

So what do you need to color in on Black paper?

All you need is a set of milky color gel pens OR a white gel pen which in recent times have become quite hard to come by.

What are the Best Gel pens for black paper?

My personal favourite gel pens to use on black paper are the milky color gel pens. The reason for this is that the milky colors pop and stand out on the paper.

The white gel pens however still have a place as I use them for doodling and doing some sketches when I am feeling bored. However nothing beats using the bright colors gel pens.

Taking all of this into account, I am very pleased that there has been a revival of this fantastic hobby. It has proven to have made my life a lot more pleasurable and given me something to look forward to at the end of the day.

I have also learned from this experience that just because something was fun when you were a kid does not mean you have to stop doing it just because you are grown up. I should’ve pursued coloring in throughout my younger life. Needless to say, I am happy it is back.

12 String Guitar Pick Cool!

I’m currently on the lookout for a guitar picks that are cool  for my acoustic and electric that can turn my 6 string acoustic into sounding like a 12 string guitar.

I have tried many guitar pedals to achieve a 12 string sound. There are a lot of good pedals that will do the job well. off the top of my head I can think of TC electronics but there are a lot more.

These pedals worked but the problem was that I had to be plugged into a PA system or an amplifier to achieve the sound I wanted so my problem was yet to be solved.

A friend of mine introduced me to the plectone guitar pick which is a really cool guitar picks. The plectone has two picks so when you strum it sounds like a 12 string! This is unbelievable technology that is actually really simple.

Plectone Guitar Picks

This new cool guitar pick has allowed me to solve my problem of having to plug my guitar into some form of amplification. Now I can take my six string acoustic or electric guitar anywhere I wish and will always get the 12 string sound.

People wonder why I don’t just buy a 12 string but I really dislike the size of the neck and I much prefer the feel of only 6 strings.
