Cola pens…

A little something I learned about recently at a workshop run by the lovely Shelley Rhodes …

Cola pens are great mark makers, holding ink for longer than sticks and allowing thick and thin marks from the same ‘pen’

Take a drinks can and disassemble

Cut into rectangular sections and fold each in half.

Mark on the shape of the pen – vary the shape to see how it affects mark making. 

Cut out the shapes and tape each ‘nib’ to a drink stirrer/ lolly stick 

Dip the pen into ink or dye and get mark making!
