Customer Reviews

I wanted to love this product, I really did... Review by Kristina Winnett

I wanted to love this product, I really did. I love Pam Carriker and her art, and have been waiting for the money to purchase the Rewettable formula of this product. My local art store carries the Derivan Liquid Pencil, but not Pam's version, with the applicator tip. So, I waited, and it finally arrived today from Interweave. I went to play with it, and ended up disappointed - so sad! I wanted an erasable product, as it was described in the description. It wasn't. I tried a kneaded eraser, and even a Tuff Stuff eraser, and it would not come off the paper. At all. It moves with a blending stump, as advertised, and it has a lovely sparkle when spread around on the paper. It's definitely rewettable, and spreads around like watercolor when wet. I found I could use a waterbrush and paper towel to "erase" my marks. But it's not what I expected, or what's been put in the description for the product. So, I can't give this product the 5 stars I wanted to.

Brilliant Product Review by Seth Apter

There is a constant stream of new products coming to market, many of which are mostly twists on current products. That is not the case with Pam Carriker's Liquid Pencil, which is new, unique, and innovative. This product can be used in so many ways, as demonstrated by Pam, but far and away my favorite is as a paint. When applied directly to the surface of a painting and then brushed on, Liquid Pencil gives a color and a sheen that I have never gotten from a traditional paint. The bottle is easy to use and its creamy texture allows you to cover a good amount of surface with a relatively small amount of product. I love it!

Mixed Media Magic in a bottle!!!!! Review by joanne sharpe

LOVE this product! If anything represents "mixed media" it is Pam's liquid pencil and mediums. This product makes any level artist look like a seasoned pro! Definitely in my art bag all the time. Congrats Pam!!!

Genius! Review by Nancy Lefko

Today I used Pam's sketching ink in my art journal in two different ways. First, I used a foam applicator to apply the ink to rubber stamps. I also used the ink directly from the bottle as the fine tip applicator makes that a breeze. It's a fabulous product and so unique...the beauty and characteristics of graphite in a painterly ink. Genius! I look forward to using a fillable pen as this will be the prefect product for that use. Artists who enjoy the look and sheen of graphite will love adding this unique product to their artistic arsenal.

Liquid Ink be still my heart Review by Mary Beth Shaw

I was lucky enough to preview Pam's new products and the Liquid Ink quickly worked its way into my heart. It is a 'must have' for any mixed media artist (in my humble opinion). I should confess that I am a sucker for any product that has a tiny tip applicator - I love to draw right onto my paintings and the Permanent Liquid Ink is absolutely perfect for this. I especially love the fact you can go back and burnish to attain a lovely sheen. This product has become a staple in my supply kit!!
