When it comes to Art and Design my kids tend to lean more on the gadgets that are going to get their creative gears moving. With my oldest who is an avid art lover and future architect, it was a no surprise that The Atmosflare 3D Drawing Pen would be a hit with my tween.
Although I can’t take credit for building our Atmosflare 3D Drawing Pen or designing the goods I can, however, take credit for the cool Mom points I earned with this review.
Sophie tested the limits of physics by attempting to design the New York City skyline. As beginners, we were amazed at how easy it was to create 3D images. I have to admit that the first few attempts were a little sticky but after a couple of tries our lines were precise and we were able to manipulate and control our image.
We noticed that using white sketching paper made things a lot messier, so I would recommend using a base such as a dark cardboard or dark construction paper to avoid the ink seeping through. Also, freestyling your image might not be the way to go. Try sketching your design ahead of time to get an idea of which way you want to manipulate your pen and design. Make sure you clean up immediately after each use since the ink tends to leave a greasy residue.
The AtmosFlare 3D Drawing Pen uses cool ink and LED light which works together to cure the artists artwork while drawing, allowing the user to draw up and over in mid-air instantly! Because the cool ink is already in a liquid form, there is no heat or melting involved, giving kids access to safely use the ink in a variety of ways to create amazing 3D creations. RedwoodVentures has made the 3D drawing craze accessible for all families with sets starting at $29.99!
