Uncapping Wink of Stella

Normally this wouldn't be such a big deal, it's a pen/marker. You pull the cap off and away you go. Why is this any different?

Well, Wink of Stella isn't a normal pen, literally. One of the great thing about Wink of Stella is the brush tip. It's a paint brush in pen form. What makes this pen so special though is the gravity feed. The gravity feed is what stops the pen from leaking out all over and being wasted.

To activate this gravity feed you need to take apart the pen and remove the black safety ring. 

Once you screw the top onto the base, it will puncture the chamber then give a very gentle squeeze. Not a big push. Just a very gentle squeeze to get the clear chamber to slightly show the colour.

Gravity will do the rest from here. The tip will become saturated with colour and sparkle, ready to add shimmer to your projects!
