Gelly Roll Pens-Sparkling Stardust, Metallic Inks

Posted on by

Stardust Gelly Roll pens have a metallic, reflective, sparkling ink. The secret ingredient is actually a cosmetic grade, finely ground glass. In this video you’ll see samples from different color Stardust pens on three different cards.

Matte finish, Radiant White card stock:

The combination of Stardust ink on this surface achieves the best effect.

The metallic sheet steals a little bit of the ink’s thunder because one might notice the metallic paper before the ink color.

Matte finish, black card stock:

In the video, it’s very difficult to see the ink on the black card, but in the close-up photo, it’s clear and quite bold. We notice less color saturation but more sparkle.

    Are the tiny bits of glass in the Stardust Gelly Roll Pens sharp enough to cut your skin? I have cats that love to scrapbook with me and I don’t want their little paws hurt! Thanks!

      Hi Josh,

      We love cats and we don’t want any harm to come their way either. The glittery “dust” that produces the reflective brilliance is a cosmetic grade, finely ground ingredient that will not separate from the ink. There is certainly nothing sharp about the ink that flows from Gelly Roll Stardust Pens.
